Thomas was very fortunate to find his craft at a very young age.

When he was ten years old, he received his first camera as a gift. His

love of photography developed into a career in 1978. His love of

portraiture and interest in people is reflected in his classic yet simple

style. His objective is to capture the true personalities of his subjects,

these interpretive portraits invoke an emotional response to the

viewer each time the work is viewed. Thomas looks at each assignment as an

opportunity to create artwork, striving to create images that enrich his subject’ s

lives. These true representations of personalities and relationships become

cherished family heirlooms. Thomas’ dedication has generated great demand and

many of his clients travel long distances from across the US and Internationally.

His work has been featured on CNN, CBS, WGN and WLS television, has been

published in Professional Photographer, RangeFinder, Time, Quintessential

Barrington and Parent magazines to name a few. He has presented his portrait

philosophy at seminars for some of the largest national conventions in the

photography industry. He currently serves on the board of directors for the

Barrington area Development Council. He has been involved in numerous

philanthropic projects most dealing with special needs children. His images are

being used by Health and Human services on a national campaign to educate the

public about people with disabilities. He is co-creator and photographer of the

book Souls: Beneath and Beyond Autism which was awarded The Autism Society

of America’ s “ Literary Work of the Year” for 2003. Thomas has partnered with
