About the Instructor: Thom Williams

Thom Williams is a photographic artist currently living in Troy, NY. Thom earned a B.F.A. from SUNY Oswego with studio concentrations in Graphic Design and Photography. He has taken photographs ranging from fashion editorials, portraits, architecture, athletic events and street photography. Whether a gesture, expression, or angle of architecture, Thom is inspired by capturing images not otherwise seen of ordinary moments that can have profound reflective meaning for the viewer. As an artist, he is interested in experimenting digitially with images and more recently in presenting images in a unique multidimensional way.

His fashion editorials have been published in Saratoga Living, The Muse and Tatoo Envy Magazine among others. Thom's work can be viewed on TM Williams Photography through Facebook or Instagram. Teaching at multiple art centers for the past 3 years in person and virtually beginning in 2020, he has found an avenue to share his passion and foster growth for others interested in photography.
