I've known of Thomas since high school. He was always in the cool kids crowd, being student body president and all. But I actually known him since college, when we were in the same sociology class with Professor Shelton(shoutout to one of my favorite professors from college!).
Thomas would always go for the most controversial "hot" topics in class and it was so neat getting to hear someone back up all of their points with actual facts, not just opinions.
Anyways, my friend here recently contacted me about doing portraits for him and when another photographer/artist reaches out to you for something like that, you can only say "hell yeah!"
