Tom Oldham

I am a London-based portrait photographer, shooting portraits of musicians, sports stars and all sorts of talented folk in locations across the nation and worldwide. It's a great gig.

I have just been announced as a winner in the 2018 BJP Portrait of Britain with Son 2, seen on screens throughout the UK.

My latest project, The Last of The Crooners, was awarded the 2018 Sony World Photography Award for Portraits in the Professional Category. It's a portrait of the Palm Tree pub in Bow, E3 and is an absolute peach. I love it. Come see the pub anytime to get what I mean, where you can also buy a vinyl LP we've made of 11 singers recorded live in the pub.

In Feb 2018 I exhibited Eldmodur which documents the correlation between the brutal yet darkly beautiful landscape of Iceland, with their athletes' incredible capacity for success in the sport of crossfit. I've published a portfolio of images in magazine format and hopefully you got one cos they're gone now. It looked great on the walls of G. F Smith Show Space in London and if you search YouTube for Eldmodur and you'll see some films about it what's more. .
