Thoreau’s Walden Pond taught Tom how to look closely, to examine minutely with the camera, to find subject matter that at first eludes us. As part of his continuing process of self-education as a photographer, Tom spent two years photographing Walden Pond—returning often to record the seasons and details of the surrounding woods as they might have appeared to Thoreau.

Tom started as a photojournalist living in Brazil creating photo essays and teaching photography at the University of Brasilia. When he moved back to New York City, he switched careers to commercial photography, accepting assignments photographing models for major cosmetic companies such as L’Oreal, Revlon and Clairol.

Tom is a founder and CEO of Tetra Images photo agency, and a founding member of the Blend Images agency. Previously, Tom was Chair of the NYCSCPC and he is here tonight to help us celebrate the Committee’s 40th Anniversary.
