About Kevin Thom

Whether I’m taking a simple business headshot, creating a complex setup for a band’s album cover, or capturing the most monumental of landmark buildings, I am always shooting for the iconic. Every time I release the shutter, I want to make an unforgettable impression.

Making great photos is only part of my job. I strive for my business practices and website to be clear, honest, and simple. Relationship and trust are very important to me. I make as much information as possible available to my clients before we work together. I am easy to work with and try my best to accommodate the needs and desires of my clients. I want your experience of working with me to be fun, stress-free and professional.

I work with all kinds of people. My clients include actors, models, musicians, advertising agencies, recording studios, law firms, restaurants, non-profit organizations, architects, artists and more.

Kevin’s Bio

Kevin Thom is an award-winning photographer who specializes in commercial, promotional and headshot photography for artists and business people. He is based out of his studio in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

Kevin takes an art-centred approach to all of his photography. A hallmark of his style is a distinct focus on visual communication. This tendency comes from the ongoing development of his conceptual series called “Elemental.” This series distills its subject matter to its most essential element, whether that be a shape, texture, color, attitude or emotion. Kevin then highlights this element using dramatic and unorthodox lighting, angles, perspective and composition.

Kevin’s work has appeared in numerous magazines, on book covers, and in other publications around the world. He has exhibited his artistic and conceptual photography in Canada and the US, as well as overseas.

Kevin is heavily influenced by the dramatic cinematic lighting style used in Hollywood movies. Some of his early influences include George Hurrell, who pioneered that style of lighting, and Yousuf Karsh. Kevin also admires the work of Erwin Olaf, Platon, and Annie Liebowitz.

An iconic photo is as much about what is left out as much as what is included. It’s as much about shadows as it is about light.
