About Tom Gowanlock

Thank you for taking a look at my work. You will find in my collection of photographs and digital paintings a huge variety of subjects and styles. I have developed a passion for capturing moments, details and patterns in the world around me, and in everyday life. My portfolio is continually growing and I hope you find something in it that speaks to you, something that you see real beauty in.

About me

As a child I was a keen artist. I spent many hours drawing with oil pastels, using techniques taught to me by a teacher, Mrs Krishna, at the Maseru English Prep School in the late 1980s. I was inspired by landscapes and wildlife of Southern Africa, which was on my door step, as well as still life drawings influenced by my mumís collection of pottery.

As my education progressed, I pushed myself hard to achieve good exam grades at GCSE and A level, and then went on to medical school for five years. After qualification, I had the opportunity to work in New Zealand for a short period, which I combined with a few stops on a round-the-world ticket. My first stop was Sydney and I decided to invest in a digital compact camera. I very soon found myself photographing my surroundings avidly. My urge was to convey a feel of the place Iím in, beyond the classic shots of landmarks, often with close up images, and aspects everyday life. Some of the best pictures I have made are from that trip!

I ended up specialising in histopathology, which is the diagnosis of disease by visualising small samples of human tissue using a microscope. Whilst there is a lot of science underpinning the discipline, the actual day-to-day work is essentially visual, consisting of pattern recognition, and translating that into a written assessment to allow management of the disease by the medical staff treating the patient.

I now work half time in histopathology and use my remaining time to manage a growing library of images. I believe the two jobs compliment each other well, and my use of pattern recognition in histopathology is often reflected in the nature of my images.

What is my work about?

My collection is a varied collection of high-end unique photographs and illustrations, ranging from highly conceptual and story-telling pictures, suitable for a wide range of commercial purposes, to highly unusual backgrounds and textures, great for prints or advertising templates.

My style combines patterns, textures and colours all captured in a carefully thought out way, and then curated and retouched with meticulous attention to detail.

I always like to share experiences with other artists and photographers so please do drop me a message and say hello!
