STREETS WITH TOM HOY
by Thomas Burke on May 06, 2022
Tom fell into the forever changing and wild world of photography after hanging up his football boots in his late teens. He wasn’t injured nor forced to quit in any way, he just didn’t like it as much anymore. He did however like taking photos.
He spent his early 20's documenting travels and capturing the stories of the people and places he'd visit. The camera was the first thing packed regardless of the destination. From snow capped mountains, untamed wilderness and unforgiving coastal destinations being behind the lens always brought Tom a sense of home.
While his main body of work heavily features surfing and surf culture, he enjoys working with movement whether that be sport, dynamic landscapes and modern fashion. We love Tom for his unique his ability to evoke emotion through his moody, brooding style of photography.
