|‘I want my women to look strong.’
Celebrities are truly themselves through Thomas’ lense. Zen, not tension pervades his sets. Lily Collins, Anya Taylor Joy, Rooney Mara, Zendaya, Ana de Armas, Naomi Campbell, Taylor Swift, Michele Obama – keep coming back to Thomas feeling confident they’ll be at ease and look their absolute best. That confidence extends to his retouching studio, to maintain total control over the final image of every celebrity friend he captures. Controlling the final stroke comes naturally to Thomas since his formative days as a painter at the Art Institute of Chicago. He is based in Los Angeles and NYC and frequently travels to Japan.
