When I was 6 years old my Dad handed me a camera and asked me to take a picture of the family. Once the photo was developed everyone remarked on how good a shot it was, it all went from there.

Over the last few years I have established myself as one of the regions leading fashion photographers whilst also working in event, commercial, product photography and film.

If you need someone with a camera then give me a shout and we can have a chat.

I love working with people who are working to make a positive difference to the world they live in. I also understand that these people, organisations and groups need access to quality content and often don't have the money to invest into it when they are struggling to get by. I do what I can to help these amazing people do the best work they can and therefore if you want to work with me and are worried about the costs please get in touch. I'll do what I can based on how much I love what you're doing and your financial circumstances. If you're doing something I truly believe in we'll find a way to make it work. 



“Thom Bartley is an outstanding photographer and a downright ace guy to work with. Down to earth, friendly and professional, he tirelessly captured four days of our arts festival and blended right in without much creative direction. We just trusted him to crack on, which he absolutely did. Plus, his turnaround and range of photographs were even better than we could have imagined and we’re so delighted. Work with him, now.”

- Cynthia Miller - Co-Founder and Director of Verve Poetry Festival

“We love working with Thom at UoBSchool. He’s friendly and approachable, instantly putting our different stakeholders at ease, whether he’s photographing or filming them. What we enjoy most about working with Thom is that he takes time to really understand the brief, and as a result he always produces beautiful work the first time round.”

- Anneka Deva - University of Birmingham School

“Thom is a warm, engaging photographer and videographer, sensitive to the contexts he works in. The work he has done with us on numerous projects is much loved and frequently used.”

- Lorna - Founder of CoLab Dudley

"As always a pleasure to work with Thom, who energetically captured the festival and took the time to fully immerse himself in the work and understand the audience. We were left with beautiful photos that will support us well as we look to promote the festival over the next few years." 

- Daniel Alcorn - Co-Founder and Director of Birmingham Design Festival
