Tom Vadnais first studied landscape photography in the Fall of 1999 in a workshop with the late Galen Rowell. But he didn’t do much with what he learned until he switched to digital in Autumn 2001. It was then that Tom started taking numerous additional photography and Photoshop workshops, seminars, and classes with some of the most respected names in the business, including Charlie Cramer, Charlie Waite, Bruce Dale, John Shaw, Jack Dykinga, John Sexton, John Paul Caponigro, Moose Peterson, and Thom Hogan.
Since 2004, Tom has been teaching photography and Photoshop in workshops the Smokies with Willard Clay (Fall) and Bill Lea (Spring). For the past several Springs, he has taught workshops with Lori Kincaid in the Max Patch area of the Appalachians. Tom has also helped British master landscape photographer Charlie Waite put on all five of his Master Class workshops in the US to date. (They’re working on MC VI).
In addition, Tom has judged numerous photography competitions, and has given many
photography and Photoshop talks, workshops, and classes for various clubs and groups around the country. He was a two-term President of the Roswell Photographic Society, and is a founding Board Member of the North Georgia Camera Club Council. He is currently in his second term as Director of Education on the Board of Georgia Nature Photographers’ Association.
Tom has been fortunate enough to win numerous photography awards, and has sold images in a number of shows and galleries. For several years, White Sands National Monument exclusively sold his images in their museum store.
