Tom Watson

Tom Watson presently lives between New York and Paris. When not shooting he can be found doing laps in Central Park or the Bois de Vincennes on one of his vintage racing bicycles. He loves to cook, and his wife Michiko and daughter Maya are his biggest fans. His favorite cuisine is Italian. His fluency in that language has helped him expand his stock of recipes.

A native New Yorker, Tom graduated with honors from the School of Visual Arts where he received a BFA in photography. While at school he exhibited his works in galleries in Manhattan, including a one-man show at the prestigious Camera Club of New York. His career in fashion began while still enrolled at SVA by assisting his thesis instructor, James Moore. He was deeply influenced by James and stayed under his tutelage for several years. After that he did a seven month stint as 1st assistant to Bill King, then on to Steven Meisel, and finally Co Rentmeester.

Tom has an extensive list of advertising clients and collaborates regularly with international fashion, beauty, lifestyle and kids magazines. Celebrity work is one of his favorite challenges. He recently exhibited several personal works in the Musee des Arts Decoratifs at the Louvre in Paris.
Tom considers himself to be one of the lucky ones by making a living out of what he likes doing best…making images.
