Born and raised in Germany, Thomas caught the travel bug during his college years, after stints as a student in the U.S. and Canada convinced him that he wanted to see more of this big, big world. His notable outdoor adventures include a 220 mile hike along the John Muir trail, summiting such mountains as McKinley in Alaska, Aconcagua in Argentina, Kilimanjaro in Africa, and an attempt at Mount Everest (alas, he only got to 26,000 ft). Wanting others to see the amazing places he had seen, Thomas began taking photographs as a way to share his wild world with family and friends.
Thomas’s images have been recognized time and again, by major international competitions such as “Travel Photographer of the Year”, “Best Windland Smith Rice International Awards”, “Wildlife Photographer of the year” and “Black&White Spider Awards”. Thomas’s images are also sold through several stock agencies, including Getty Images.
