About Tomas

Not in Public Practice -


Remembering traditional darkroom practices but moving towards the future:

Earlier, way earlier I gained experience as photographer & darkroom technician, as a lithographic printer on an A3 AB Dick offset machine, making the plates too and also shooting video - who remembers the orange of the JVC 2000E? I stored away a City & Guilds 744 in Professional Photography on my journey. In 2002 I Graduated with a BSc in Medical Illustration, (Medical Photography). I currently work for University College Cork and provide Professional Imaging Services to the University and Medical communities. I value continued professional development and maintain memberships of the Institute of Medical Illustrators (IMI) & The Irish Professional Photographers & Videographers Association (IPPVA).


Assignments are quite diverse and may include:

Current Events imagery - regularly working to ensure maximum Media placement for the University - very often live Tweeting images from a "proper camera"or perhaps using Instagram/Facebook Live to enhance the client experience.

Professional Profile Imagery for Traditional & Social Media use. Over 1600 University staff photographed in studio.

Corporate Promotional imaging - Providing imagery for promotional/information brochures for UCC Colleges, Departments and Research Centers.

Medical Imaging - providing Medical Photography Services to Hospitals in the city.

In the past have worked uniquely & in collaboration with a Stock Photography supplier to maximize imagery availability to the University.

Shooting and providing imagery to the University image bank, when time, opportunity & seasons allow.


Continuing to explore new imagery capturing & delivery methods - always providing engaging imagery.

Seriously, have you seen what imagery you can get from phones?? Wow, love it & it only gets better.

To make clients & employer aware that as I am employed by University College Cork, all images I create become part of the unique legacy and visual history of the University.


Will happily admit to using Canon gear but also a lover of Lumix gear. Recently personally invested in an S5 which I also use on assignment....

My old (1998) Subaru, an even older Vauxhall & Apple stuff are cool too :-)

Please feel free to shoot me an email about... well stuff .... - imagery, coffee, cars, Spike Milligan etc
