Tom became interested in photography 35+ years ago when he bought his first Mamiya / Sekor 35 mm camera. Next came a Pentax. In 2003 he purchased a Canon Digital Rebel and has been taking digital photos since then. He upgraded to a Canon 40D in 2007 then to a Canon 6D in 2015.

He began to show his photos in 2004 and won 3rd place for a photo titled "Nectar Break". Each year he has entered the local Art Shows and has won ribbons for his photos.

Tom's photo titled "Jaspar on Roof" was published in the "Cat Welfare Association 2007 Calendar" representing the month of September. "Peony" was awarded a first place in 2008. "Weathered Tree" won 3rd place in 2013. "Morning Light" won first place and "2 Tone Dahlia" won honorable mention in 2015.

In 2014 Tom joined his wife in a studio at Western Avenue Studios in Lowell, Mass. and diplayed his work there until June of 2017.
