Every time Tom has a class available, I sign up without question. Tom has been a major part of me not only getting comfortable using flash, but also with me working with models. I have attended everything from single light classes to studio lighting and they are always fantastic. His teaching style is fun, dynamic, collaborative and I always take something away from them. Tom encourages me to push my thinking and honestly, I have gotten some of the best photos I have ever taken during his classes. All you need to do is glance at his Instagram grid to realize he is a top photographer and spend a few minutes talking with him to realize he is a great person. If you are looking for a photographer, look no further!

Thomas is not only an amazing photographer, but one of the best to work with! He knows what he wants in a photo and perfects it. Thomas and his team keep you laughing as well as give some of the best advice when needed. Lighting for my daughter is huge and he has mastered his craft! You will always get better then what you asked for! He is always a go to for sure! Thank you ❤️

Thomas Hopkins is such a talented and truly professional photographer. As a dancer, it takes a lot of talent for a photographer to catch the perfect moment and Thomas has it!  The best photos I’ve had taken were from him. He is very professional and kind to work with. He knows exactly what to look for when capturing a moment and I’m excited to work with him again.

I began my journey with Thomas Hopkins photography about 3 years ago now! During every encounter I had – whether it be a photo shoot for headshots, modeling for a photography class, or having the time of my life at an equestrian shoot – I only looked forward to the next chance I had to see the crew again! Tom and Milton made me laugh, taught me modeling techniques that improved my posing, and I learned a thing or two about taking pictures myself. It was always a genuine time with friends and I look forward to taking pictures with them again in the near future.

Thank you, guys, for everything you’ve done for me! Till I get the chance to see you again 😊

So happy that my daughter and I had the pleasure of working with Thomas Hopkins this past year! My daughter is a 10 year experienced signed model and we have had a lot of experiences with photographers through the years. Our experience with Thomas was one of the best both from both a professional and talented photographer standpoint. We were so impressed by the team Thomas put together, his time and attention to detail, studio, knowledge of lighting, creative input and both the time frame, quantity and quality of images delivered. I would recommend Thomas to anyone looking for a top notch photographer and look forward to working with him again!

We have had the privilege to work with Thomas on more than one occasion. His kind demeanor and ability to engage with my daughter on a level that makes her comfortable has made our sessions with him flawless. He has an amazing eye for the art of photography and a vision that brings his photos to life to really tell a story. We can’t wait to work with him again.

Tom Hopkins is a fantastic teacher. He builds from the ground-up and can relate to beginners while simultaneously teaching techniques which will last long into a photographer’s career. Tom manages to provide a guiding hand while also giving his students leeway to try their own creative ideas. His choice of models for his classes is also fantastic – finding individuals who are both professional but relatable. Studio photography is a very daunting field to enter and Tom manages to break it down and make it navigable in a very welcoming and encouraging way.

Review: As a dancer, I appreciate Thomas’ ability to capture movements so well. I have had multiple dance photo shoots with him, (he even came to do a professional studio shoot for my young dance students one summer), and every time it has been a wonderful, positive experience. Thomas’s appreciation for the art shows in the way he interacts with the dancers modeling for him and through his final products! I highly recommend him and his crew if you are looking for a fun, professional, inspiring dance photo shoot!

A fun professional experience
Review: Thomas did a dance shoot with my daughter and we had a really fun time. He did a great job putting my 8 year old at ease and developing a fun rapport with her that by end of the shoot she didn’t want to leave.  He captured some really beautiful images of her dancing along with head shots. He took care to set up every shot and explain to her what he was doing with the lights and camera settings and what he needed her to do to capture the best shot.  I definitely recommend Thomas for your photography needs.
