BIO

Tomas Tison is a Czech fine art photographer who focuses on black and white photography with a minimalist composition. Black and white tones add dramatic accents to a photograph, assisting the photographer in better expressing his intentions and enhancing the rendering of his vision. The main themes that connect his works are nature and landscape.

Tomas discovers and captures places as he sees them himself. He often takes a trip around his surroundings and looks for interesting elements, structures or lines. Photography has made him think about things he ignored in the past. Thanks to photographic images, he can realize and express his ideas or feelings and views of the world.

Toma’s works have been awarded in many photography competitions around the world. He has exhibited his pictures in the United States, Australia, United Kingdom, Sweden, Spain, Philippines, Thailand, India or Czechia.
