Photographer Thomas Sunderland is one of those lucky people who earns their living doing exactly what they like best and has been doing just that for the past 25 years. His professional experience is drawn from a wide variety of work, including Wedding, Fashion, Portrait, advertising and Commercial Photography.
Thomas is a self schooled photographer based in Carlow Town in Ireland’s sunny south east. His journey into the world of Photography began in his teens when he worked behind the scenes as a darkroom technician for a local Newspaper before becoming a Junior Press Photographer.
In 1991 he became a Licentiate member of the Irish Professional Photographers Association and opened his own Professional Photographic Studio in Carlow, where he now has a small fully trained and friendly team whose aim is to give customers the best achievable results in the field of Professional Photography.
Several years ago, at the start of the Digital Technology revolution, he invested heavily in state of the art digital equipment which he installed in his own in-house workshop.
His work to date includes a large portfolio of bridal fashion photography which is published on a regular basis in The Irish Wedding Diary Magazine
including a front cover which was shot at his studio in Carlow.
Thomas' first love however is wedding photography, where his experience offers today’s bride an album that tells a true story while being shot in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. A perfect alternative to the obligatory collection of ‘stuffy’ pictures where everyone is posed to within an inch of their lives!
The bride, above anyone, knows how important it is to be able to enjoy her day. With his informal style Thomas will make you, your family and your guests feel comfortable, combining directed shots with spontaneous photography in an unobtrusive and relaxed manner.
The result will be a creative blend of skilfully captured moments. If you are looking for a fresh, vibrant, yet intimate account of one of the happiest days of your life, you will not be disappointed!
