Thom was born and raised in Yorkshire. From a very young age, his close relationship with his Godmother — to whom he would apply lipstick and blush — influenced his love of makeup.
At 19 he moved to Paris to undertake an internship for an international cosmetic house. During this time, he developed his aesthetic and explored his interest in natural skin textures and details, inspired by the women he saw there. On his return to the UK he moved to London where he began his career to this day.
Today, he continues to be inspired by women, as well as nature, interiors and architecture. His love for image-making maintains his natural and modern approach.
His work has been featured in publications including British Vogue, Love Magazine, Man About Town, i-D, W Magazine, Dazed & Confused, L’Uomo Vogue, 032c and The Last Magazine.
He has worked with the likes of Robi Rodriguez, Mel Bles, Johnny Dufort, Terry Richardson, Liz Collins, Carlotta Maniago, Tim Walker, Mark Lebon, Lea Colombo, and Nick Knight.
