This is Thomas Prior. On the left, 18, the right– 28. This in itself tells a pretty nice story, and stories are something Prior is apparently exceedingly good at. He sent over his blog this morning and I’ve been completely mesmerized ever since.
“Tom is 28 years old and lives in Brooklyn. He
graduated from School of Visual Arts in 2002 with a BFA. He currently
assists and prints for fashion photographer Luis Sanchis who lets him
shoot behind the scenes photos and travel to kick ass places around the
Luis Sanchis! I adore Luis Sanchis. Which is a rarity for me among fashion photographers.
Anyway, the blog… the blog is amazing. I know there are a proliferation of these situations out there today, and every photographer’s gotta have one, rah rah rah. But Prior makes the most of his.
He takes incredible, lyrical shots from his everyday life, and behind-the-scenes stuff on shoots with Luis, and updates us on his own projects and progress. You really must check it out. There’s tons of stuff to see.
Also I went a little nuts and reproduced some stuff below. All the words are Prior’s.
Some firework photos from Friday. All exposures were made between .5
and 8 seconds using boulders and a water bottle for my tripod.

We had to wade in on the second day. Your feet would get salty and pants would dry into a rocky shell.
Shot designer Yigal Azrouel
for Nylon Guys a couple months back. I’m not going to bother posting
the tear sheet cause they printed the photo 3 inches tall…bummer…Here’s the one they picked to use.
