Thomas Hopkins

Thomas Hopkins is a professional portrait and dance photographer with over a quarter of a century of experience on two coasts.

Tom’s photography centers around dance and it’s movement with a focus on ballet, troupes and contemporary dance. He also does High School Senior Portraits, Corporate head-shots, as well as individual portraits and photo portfolios. Photoshoots can be on location or in the studio.

Tom began his photography work in Maine, where he grew up, attended school, and first picked up a camera. He learned to connect with people through his camera, capturing their moods and expressions, and hearing their stories. That interest in people led to a short career in public safety but photography continued to prevail. After mentoring with a local professional talent and learning the art of lighting, he opened his own studio in Maine.

Vacations in the Pacific Northwest led to an eventual move, arriving in Washington State where he continues to do studio and location work. Tom works in the camera industry as well, allowing him to stay current. He conducts classes and workshops in lighting, mentoring others, just as he was mentored. He coaches, teaches, and tutors post production skills. Additionally, Tom teaches classes for The Profoto Lighting Company.
