Tom hasn’t looked back since.
His dedication and passion towards his craft continues to attract not only the industry’s leading designers and brands, but some of the worlds most prestigious and influential magazines.
Moving with the times and keeping up with the changes in the industry, Tom started directing alongside shooting still photography.  His directing debut was for Madonna, when she asked him to shoot her music video, ‘Give it to me’ featuring Pharrell Williams. This in turn lead to another four film projects and numerous photographic collaborations with the ‘Queen of Pop’ as well as shooting her tour book “Sticky & Sweet”.
Subsequently, Tom has directed films and commercials for Giorgio Armani ‘Si’ fragrance starring Cate Blanchett, Dolce and Gabbana ‘Wild about Fall’, Tom Ford ‘Lips and Boys’ and most recently Lancome ‘Renergie’ starring Kate Winslet.

16 May to 3 June 2018, saw Tom’s ambitious installation and narrative collage (3 meters high x 44 meters long) aptly named 72Tokyo, he having photographically documented for a 72 hour period (day and night) the streets and sights of Tokyo and Kyoto.
Shown at London’s uber cool the store x and curated by art historian Carrie Scott, 72Tokyo is a visual translation as seen through his own refined eye, which was a frenetically paced, sleepless, dynamic photographic study of Japanese culture.

In 2005, with UK based charity MEAK (Medical and Educational Aid to Kenya), Tom embarked on his first MEAK Mission to Kenya, lending his photographic services to help raise awareness for this unique and non-profit charity with who he remains involved to this day having completed his most recent mission in October 2017.
