about Tom Styrkowicz community portrait professional photography

this is the 9th chapter in my life.

I started focusing again on photography after the sudden death of my wife in 2005. Photography was part of my career, mostly doing fashion work for clients like Napier Jewelry and London Fog. In this chapter I wanted to focus on people, and in doing that I realized my talent for almost instantly being able to gain the trust of my subjects, connecting with them to reveal sides of themselves that the public rarely sees.

I am excited to expand on my portrait/performance experience which I call ONEbyONE Community Portrait™. I’m creating a portrait of an entire community one person at a time. They can be museums, companies, trade groups, cities, or any group of people people who have a common interest.

Every day I feel I am just beginning. There are so many things I want to try. So many people I want to capture. Every project is a new adventure. That’s what I want from my photos, and my life, and what I want to help you do as well.
