Hello my name is Mark Thomas. I have lived and worked in the Tampa area my entire life. I bought my first camera in the early 80’s and excelled at nature macro photography on Kodachrome film. After taking a substantial break from photography to raise three children and provide for them, I returned to my love of photography in 2012 using the digital format. I find digital photography to be an amazing technology! Instead of studying macro photography, I started studying portraiture in natural light, this further fueled my love for photography and drove my desire to capture my images the best way possible. A few years ago, my lifelong friend left the area for the northeast and gifted me with enough studio equipment to take on any job. This wonderful gift has now allowed me to be able to set up a small studio where I am able to study lighting. I have always been fascinated with the human form and have admired some of the work of Robert Mapplethorpe. His photograph titled BOW AND ARROW has been a favorite of mine since it was published in ‘81. Now having a studio, I decided to give art nude a try. Luckily for me I have a marvelous partner who believes in me and is willing to model. After some trial and error I managed to come up with a lighting configuration that highlights the curves of the human form. I have now used that configuration with several female subjects and I am very pleased with the results.

        Sorry, autocorrect turned "personality" into "personalities."

              Your portfolio is wonderful. The simplicity of your light and shadow really highlight the glory that is the female form. I can't wait to see more!

                            Thank you. I used a Christmas projector on my Model, along with studio flash. Net lights in the back.

                              Thank you for your comment on my photograph of Helen. The lighting is from a ring light that I assembled by hand. I can't recommend it highly enough for photographers looking for an eerily beautiful effect. Thanks again for your comment.
