Sometimes, it is difficult to place a photographer into just one category of work where they excel. Tom Chambers is one of these photographers, who exemplifies the idea of what we determine to be a multi-talented imaging master. While Tom's main area of focus has been in the area of Documentary Photojournalism, he has recently moved into the new area of Digital Imaging, where he has been exploring the use of digital manipulation as an art form. Our staff was very impressed by his new efforts in this area of the medium.
Along with his portfolio on Profotos, Tom is also a contributing author in our online "Profotos Magazine". His article on Documentary Portraiture draws it's base from the many years of experience Tom has in the field. This article was our staff's first impression of Tom's work, and it really opened our eyes to his talent.
Be sure to check out the article after you review Tom's impressive image portfolio. You will find a multi-faceted approach to the photographic medium within Tom's images and words, which is sure to impact your photography!,Tom R.
