Located in Westerville, Ohio, Tom specializes in High School Seniors, Tweens, Families, Children, and Sports, Photography.
Senior Pictures: We can shoot both in studio and on location. What you see here is an example of an outdoor session at a local park where I wanted to separate the subject from the background using a very shallow depth of field. This was taken on a sunny mid afternoon day. A Diffuser and Off Camera Lighting was required to capture this shot. Equipment to control lighting in any condition and the skill and knowledge to use it appropriately is what separates a professional image from a snapshot.
Sports: Having grown up playing Baseball and Football as well as competing in Triathlons and Marathons later in life, needless to say Sports have always been and still are an important part of my life! This image was captured in studio and then composited in Photoshop. Creates an awesome Metal Print!!! Whether in studio or actually shooting the game I enjoy both!! A few years ago I had the opportunity to shoot a High School Football game. The sounds, the cool fall air, the smell of the grass all brought back memories of running out onto the field many years ago and preparing for the game myself!
Portraits: Using Lighting and Modifiers in conjunction with posing, expression, composition, color harmony and background allows for the creation of awesome Portraits. Whether a headshot, a family portrait, or a picture of your children or pet....we can create a cherished lifelong memory to hang on your wall, place on your desk or share on social media.
Landscapes, Nature, Wildlife, Wall Art: I also grew up outdoors. Having grown up in SW Pa. hunting was a big part of my youth. I spent quite a bit of time walking and hiking through woods and mountians. Today, the gun has been traded in for the camera but being outdoors remains something that brings joy to me. Hopefully the images I create bring joy to you as well! Capturing the rushing waters of a stream or river as they fall over rocks and crash to the awaiting waters below is something you will find me searching for on many of my off days! The image here is an example of that. Hopefully you can here the waters rushing and find serenity in the scene as I did when I captured it! These make for great Wall Art!
