Highly regarded in the reportage and advertising community for his ability to capture the raw character of his subjects, Thom’s images not only illustrate the faces of its subjects but also reveal the stories behind these images through nuanced picture making.
A relaxed yet professionally disciplined approach allows Thom to communicate effectively with a subject whilst operating seamlessly with creative teams and clients. A diverse background of subjects ensures Thom is ready to meet the challenge of capturing a varied range of briefs all to a depth that enhances the quality of imagery provided throughout a shoot.
Despite being in the early stages of an advertising career Thom’s clients base is rapidly growing and currently includes AAMI, Melbourne University, AGL, Telstra, Public Transport Victoria, Pioneer, Nike, Department of Climate Change & Energy Efficiency, McDonalds, ADF as well as attracting some of Australia’s leading agencies all looking to draw on his fresh approach to creative projects. Youth that extends to an ability to adapt to lengthy periods on the road having traveled extensively completing campaigns for Essential Energy, Iveco, NBN and the Federal Government’s Clean Energy Future campaign.
Utilising photography to not only portray the stories of others but also to explore and reflect Thom’s own life as he develops and grows to become an authentic and formidable leading Australian photographer. Making the most of every opportunity by seizing each challenge that presents itself without hesitating to tackle difficult or confronting briefs, Thom has deployed Gas driven rigs to propel talent across studios, pushed the space to extend possibilities in cramped hotel rooms, and demanded more of professional footballers to do the impossible all because nothing is too complicated for Thom Rigney’s photography.
