Fine Art & Stock
Tom’s interest in photography began at an early age and was influenced greatly by the pantheon of 20th century fine art and photo-journalists photographers like Ansel Adams, the Weston’s, W. Eugene Smith, Lee Friedlander, Edward Stieglitz, Margaret Bourke White, Roy De Carava, Cartier Bresson, Richard Avedon, Robert Frank, Minor White, to name a few. Photographing landscapes, seascapes, and cityscapes remain important avenues for him to explore and he continues to pursue them at every opportunity.
â€œShooting stockâ€ is the term professional photographers will use when they refer to images they are making with the specific intent of creating a photograph that will have universal appeal in association with a specific theme. Additionally, they can be of specific locales, monuments, structures, and or things to identify and generate interest in a specific area or activity. One important way in which businesses and professionals can separate themselves from their competition is to commission imagery specific to their needs rather than using images from a stock agency that anyone else can have access to as well, thus diminishing their singular connection to the contracting business. With his extensive background in stock and fine-art photography, the photoman can work with you to create images unique to your business or profession.
