Biography: Tom Mackie
Tom Mackie is recognised as one of the world’s finest landscape photographers. His understanding of light, perspective and colour is the hallmark that has established his name both internationally and in the UK.
A photographer all his working life, Tom began his career with a five-year stint as an industrial and architectural photographer in Los Angeles, fresh from gaining his degree in commercial photography. Travelling extensively through the vast, cinemascope terrain of the Western States during this period ignited a life-long passion for landscapes, and he realised the confines of a commercial studio were no longer going to be enough.
Architectural and travel commissions added to his repertoire, accolades followed from The British Institute of Professional Photographers, the Ilford Awards and the Business Calendar Awards, and his reputation as one of the world’s leading landscape photographers was sealed by his inclusion in The World’s Top Photographers: Landscape, published by RotoVision.
Tom Mackie has written several books, most notably Photos With Impact and Tom Mackie’s Landscape Photography Secrets, and numerous articles for photography magazines in the UK and abroad. He is a regular contributor to Photography Monthly and Amateur Photographer, and lectures to other professionals on the art of landscape photography, as well as running a series of acclaimed photography workshops in spectacular locations both in the UK and abroad.
