Tom Shaw is an award winning commercial and editorial photographer based in London. His specialty is capturing people, portraits, and action moments around the world of sports and sports culture.

Tom has an incredible amount of energy, enthusiasm and love for taking pictures. His sense of wonderment for his subject always drives him for more…he is conceptually driven, always curious, and in search for capturing interesting stories behind his work. His long deep connection with stunning and remote landscapes (having grown up in Scotland) is one of his biggest motives and source of inspirations - this is evident and echoes throughout his beautiful, calm, peaceful and controlled approach to his body of his work.

Commercially he has worked with a wide variety of clients such as adidas, Nike, Puma, New Balance, Investec, Standard Life Investments, Aberdeen Standard Investments, ECB, RFU, Speedo, Sky Sports, Leagoo, AIA, Bridgestone, Wasps and Saracens to name a few. Editorially he has shot for a number of magazines and websites such as The Sunday Times, The Golfers Journal, Spaces InBetween magazine, The Guardian and The Independent.
