Welcome!

You’ve come to the right place if you love photography, you want to deepen your understanding and want to improve. You’ve come to the right place if you’re looking for mentoring or coaching for your photography. If you’ve been looking for insightful, understanding commentary on your photography. You’ve arrived!

Who is Tom?

If you've read one of the two million copies of my photography books in circulation, you know a bit about me already! Thank you for visiting. I hope you'll join me on the next leg of our journey together.

I’ve been making pictures, writing, researching and thinking photography for over 40 years. Lucky me: it's a wonderful gig. I’ve written about one book for each of those years. Some are best sellers, published in over 20 languages. Some are award-winners. For over 12 years I lectured at university on under-graduate and masters courses, and I’ve led numerous workshops in many parts of the world. I've judged major competitions such as Sony World Photography Awards, Wildlife Photographer of the Year, Hamdan International Photography Award (HIPA). And I've been industry consultant to some of the leading companies of photography. My work has been recognised internationally by being awarded the HIPA Photography Content Creator Award 2019. Other credits include three TV series on photography, international exhibitions plus I'm the Sony NZ Digital Imaging Ambassador.

I have lots and LOTS to offer you!

Matching your needs

At ground level, you can access my e-books and articles on photography. As I put new and old material on, the depth and extent cover will grow.

Another tier offers you more in-depth articles, and a chance to contribute your input to my latest work that ranges from photographic ethics to creativity and the psychology of photographic vision. You'll find the philosophical and the technical and the historical. It will be hard to find wider scope anywhere else in this Selenium-toned tier.

And if you need more, let’s chat one-on-one! Elect this Gold-toned tier if you’d like me to help with truly focused help. Directly on your own images. It’s the acupuncture of photography coaching! Precise and where it's needed. All done via email/messages for flexibility. You’ll be able to apply my comment, ideas or reviews directly to your own experience, rather than abstracting from books. And you'll learn a lot more than receiving hundreds of 'Likes'!

If it's business and special project coaching in photography that you want, then it’s best to talk, face to face and work together one-to-one. Elect this top Platinum tier - strictly limited in numbers - for this elite service. I’ll be your personal mentor and coach in all things photographic, and beyond!

This is three-clicks easy starting with that big button up there! Choose your tier of benefits, and let's get started! You can cancel any time if you're not happy (but if you feel that way, do tell me why and what I can do better). You can increase benefits easily too. No locking in! So feel free to try out.

If you have any questions, please do ask me!
Tiers
Silver
$3 or more per month

You get one of my e-books a month over the first five months. (Unlike many other online offerings these are chunky and stuffed full with valuable information.) 

Bought separately, they’d cost $60, so you make an instant saving! Thereafter, you’ll also receive shorter writings on photography - covering a wide range (not just technical). It all makes it well worth staying with me.


Selenium-toned
$10 or more per month

You’ll get my e-books and new material as in the Silver Tier. But go Selenium-toned, and you’ll get more - heaps more! Substantial material like sections or extracts from my printed books as well as videos.

You can also work with me on new projects, which gives you access to brand-new material before anyone else sees it. 

All this is solid ever-green material each month to inspire you, encourage you to think and explore - to enjoy your photography even more.


Gold-toned
$60 or more per month

You’ll get everything in the Silver and Selenium tiers, of course. But what the extra $50 really buys you is truly valuable commentary from me for one (or group of up to five related images) of your photos per month. Or, you can ask me any question about photography and I'll do my best to help or guide you.

With the photos, send me notes about what you did and what you wanted to do. Send me any kind of images - mobile phone, scanned prints, top-notch digital - all are fine. 

I’ll give you my reactions, suggestions and ‘homework’ - or whatever you ask for or need. Perhaps you want to see what I’d do with an image? Want to know what to do next? Thinking about cropping the shot? Whatever ... let's work together!

It’s like having a virtual personal tutorial each month! 

Numbers limited to ensure I give you truly personal service.



Includes Discord rewards
Platinum
$300 or more per month

Of course, you get all the advantages of the other tiers. But more than a single photo a month, you can send me sets, groups or rough edits for a project or portfolio. 

This tier is for those of you really keen for the expert attention and coaching needed to propel you to the next level!

Within limits (like please don’t ask me to sort through 5000 shots from a wedding), I don’t want to put a lid on how I help you. We’ll work out together what’s best for you.

Business coaching, life-coaching, keeping healthy, techie refinements: they all work together to make you a successful photographer. You won’t get far being great in one department while neglecting a crucial aspect. We can email, Discord or whatever suits you best and as often as is useful.

The total for a year is less than what you’d pay for short-term coaching or a workshop from others with a fraction of my experience. 

Check out other offers available, and please return when you’re confident I can give you truly excellent value for money.


Numbers very limited to ensure I give you truly personal service.

Goals
1 of 500 patrons
Dear People!
When we have so many supporting the work I do for you, it's time to give back, don't you think? When we reach this goal, I pledge to give 10% of my next year’s net income from Patreon to a photography or environmental charity.
Which one? I will ask you to help me choose the charity.
I hope you all feel this a worthwhile goal - better than offering you trinkets. Do help me achieve it by spreading the word to get more patrons.
Thanks for your support.
