About Tom


I am humanitarian photographer with a lifelong love of travel and adventure, based in Porto, Portugal, after several years' residence in Switzerland, Morocco, and Belgium. An outdoorsman who loves mountains, I am inspired by bold architecture and views from high places. Visit my galleries to view images from my travels as a photographer, on commission and as a volunteer. Can I help showcase your organization's humanitarian efforts? Drop me a line via my Contact page and let's get started!

I have participated in photographic exhibitions in the US and Europe and contributed to a wide range of print and online publications. My greatest interest is in supporting humanitarian efforts to improve the lives of people, and especially children.
