Thomas Rohde – PHOTOGRAPHERS

THOMAS ROHDE
Graffiti Gyrograff

Hello! I’m a London based photographer specialising in graphic still life. After the obligatory post-college backpacking, and a short stint bartending in New York City, I made London my home from my native Copenhagen, Denmark in 2002 to study photography at University of the Arts London.

I’m at my happiest when faced with a new object to photograph and the challenge that lies in transforming it into a highly desirable object; the process of tweaking the lighting setup just so to reveal the texture and shape of the object, enhancing its unique and visually interesting features in order to create inspired, luxurious imagery.

I love the entire creative process from initial brief to glossy end product, and I embrace the most up-to-date retouching techniques and cgi (when needed) but I always strive to capture as much as possible in camera as there really is no substitute for the real thing.

My lighting style is crisp and direct in order to achieve a graphic yet balanced composition which, I find, best showcases the object in front of the camera.
