Hi, I’m Tomo and I think getting married is the most incredible thing you can do.
When I was younger, I had a dream of being in a Pilot… sadly that didn’t happen – but as a grown-up, I love to create beautiful images.
I live in London with my wife and our new baby Katja Rose.
We share our home with two sleepy cats called Mila and Cat.
Whilst I love London I grew up in a cottage in the countryside in Slovenia. Miles from shops or city centres. Both of my parents were artists of different sorts. My dad was a Journalist and encouraged me to enjoy my freedom. My mother was a Teacher and, she would teach people what she knew. Neither of my parents had a camera and they don’t have any photographs of their wedding day.
Looking back now that seems strange as we were a very creative family. I was taught to read and play music, given a pencil and piece of paper to draw when I was bored and sent outside to kick a football around our fields in the summer. I was in the school football team and did well at math.
I’ve always been creative. Music. Drawing. Painting. But after discovering photography I started to develop a love of photographing people. Parties, family reunions, christenings. It was liberating to share my vision of the world with others and be complimented in return.
