Tom Chaplin is a Photographer, Retoucher and Tutor based in London. Having only come to photography, due to the gift of a camera on his 18th Birthday, Tom quickly arrived at a (slightly obsessive) fascination with the medium. Deciding to change his degree from Ancient History to Photography during his gap year, he hasn’t looked back since. Achieving a First Class Degree in Photography from London South Bank University in 2018, Tom has gone on to build both a successful commercial practice as well as create and deliver Photography Workshops and Holidays across the world. He has worked for companies such as Pepsi, Fassi, Macmillan Cancer Support, South Bank Collective and Cities at Dawn, requiring his ability to adapt to different situations, ensuring that high quality images are always delivered.

Over the last 5 years, Tom has worked in many different photographic genres and has published multiple books relating to travel and documentary photography. He has amassed a wealth of knowledge, developed outstanding skills in all areas of photographic practice and absolutely loves his job.
