I've had a number of email requests over the last couple of months to show some of my work. When I get a bit more time in early summer, I will get my portfolio blogs up and running, but for now, I just came across a slide of a piece I did some years ago when I was 'auditioning' for an agency to create posters for the performing arts. I had great hopes and expectations, but alas, photography won out over illustration. The irony for me was that, of course, I used photographs for reference.
I would dearly love to visually interpret the performing arts for whatever the usage, but, well, I still have a good dozen years ahead of me. Perhaps one day.
I am posting these images with a non-profit and educational 'fair use' motive, regarding respective copyrights. Anyone downloading and using these images for any commercial use would be in violation of respective copyrights, and does not have my approval for such use.
My name is Thom Buchanan.
I'm an artist and photographer.
People are my favorite subjects to portray in art and photos. My wife (and studio partner) has called that my 'people skills', as I've been passionately creating portrait studies for many years.
I refer to myself as a pictorialist, as I don't limit myself in the process of how an image is made. Images are my life.
