Tom Lamb is a aerial, architectural, landscape and ethnographic , panoramic and interpretive photographer, based in Laguna Beach, California.
He uses photography, as his primary tool, along with pioneering trends in new media. Tom has dedicated his life to not only creating, through the art of storytelling, memorable photographs, but also championing environmental awareness.
His images, both from the air and the ground, are of the built and un-built, often abandoned or in transition, landscapes. His images examine how we interact with the planet’s most valuable but increasingly threatened resources.
Tom is interested in the balance between the natural world and man’s mark on the land. He travels extensively. His work is published, exhibited and collected internationally.
