He started working in a professional capacity in 1984, shooting freelance editorial, primarily for the fashion industry.

Although Thomas has a varied portfolio of work, he is inspired by female beauty, capturing the sensuality and sexuality of woman, which remains his principal subject matter. his artistic portrayal of "the nude" has now gained international recognition. Thomas also works as a commercial photographer, with a primary focus on fashion and beauty.
