Thomas (1984) was born and raised in Rotterdam. At 11 years old, while on holidays in Greece, he took over the family camera.He became seriously involved with photography during the last years high school, when he bought his first “real” (single-lens reflex) camera, taking it to various jazz venues he was frequenting at the time to experiment. Not surprisingly, his first assignments involved concert photography, supplying reviews at Dutch jazz e-magazine jazzenzo.nl with photos and shooting portraits of musicians. He has since expanded his expertise into portrait and event photography, occasionally covering weddings and documenting his travels abroad.
Thomas has participated in and held several exhibitions, amongst which in the Amsterdam Public Library, renowned Jazzcafé Dizzy and at the Wereld Jazz Dagen Festival.
