Thomas Cooper's images are diverse, poignant and unforgettable. A professional photojournalist with over 20 years of experience, photography is Tom's career, adventure, passion and contribution. Tom's professional experience extends beyond his commercial work; through his art, he is on a quest to preserve precious parts of the world that are fast disappearing. His eye for composition and his drive to capture the whole story have led him to photograph, from start to finish, such unforgettable news events as Columbine and the Hayman Fire.
Tom immerses himself in each assignment so that he can see the world through the eyes of his subjects, and then convey that unique vision to print. He has an instinctive sense of timing and willingness to push the boundaries in pursuit of the image. The result is a string of awards attesting to his ability to capture news, wildlife, fashion, commercial projects, intimate weddings, and famous people. His photography has propelled him to dive with great white sharks, fly in helicopters over forests-turned-infernos, rove through rain forests, take wing in antique airplanes and sail on multi-million dollar yachts. Tom's work has been featured in over 30 publications in the U.S., including The New York Times, Sports Illustrated and Time Magazine, as well as numerous international publications.
