I’ve been working with all things digital multimedia since 1995 – building websites, empowering online learning programs with interactive media, and creating motion images using Adobe Flash, Photoshop and Dreamweaver. I’ve led teams of extremely creative humans – photographers, videographers and multimedia experts – for clients located around the world. I currently live in Parker, CO USA. My wife and I run our photography business out of a small studio near Denver, CO, USA. (www.thomasstudiophotography.com)

My images have been published in Empower Magazine and we won Thumbtack’s 2015 Top Five Modeling Photographers in Denver. I also have spoken to local PPA chapters on lighting, posing and the business of running a studio.

I completed six months of courses at the Denver School of Photography and have my Certificate of Professional Photography from The Photography Institute (completed the 12 month program in 2013). We are members of the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) and am studying for my Professional Photographers Certification (PPC) test and I’m currently earning credits toward my Photographic Craftsman (Cr.Photog.) by speaking and mentoring other photographers.

I read everything on photography I can get a hold of. I have a background in adult learning which tends to make me a sponge. I’m the author of four books on eLearning and won the 2008 ATD BEST award for my leadership development programs. I am also a 2016 Learning Champion, eLearning Magazine’s Mentor of the Year. I’ll be featured in magazines and other media starting in May. I am receiving my award on June 6th.

I’ve consulted and created projects for CHANEL, Murale, Shoppers Drug Mart, DISH, Nissan, Comcast, Airgas, Trizetto, Janus Capital Group, Western Union, Swarovski, Walmart and the Walmart Foundation, and Church Pension Group.

All feedback and critique is welcome as I believe I will continue to learn until the day I die. I firmly believe that all of us are smarter than one of us, and all of you are much smarter than I!

Some days I upload a shot from my little pocket Sony. Other days I upload work shots taken for clients that are completely polished. Some days my shots are crap. Some days my shots are completely Photoshopped. I have a style in my professional shooting that occasionally shows up here, but this community is for experimentation and dedication, not necessarily for portfolio building. I'm a Canon shooter - I shoot with a 1DX, 5D Mark III and a 5DSR - a full frame kind of guy.
