Tom is a 40 year veteran of the photography business.  Starting in 1976 as a freelance photographer and working for various studios, he joined Gittings in Atlanta in 1978. There he began his love of fine photographic portraiture learning the craft of posing, lighting and background control so he could please the most discriminating patrons. Tom purchased the studio in 1989 and continued the challenge of producing the best portraits and finishing possible for his customers.  His work hangs in fine homes and corporate galleries throughout the southeast.  In 2009, he changed the name from Gittings to PortraitCraft.  Tom graduated from Stetson University in 1975 with a B.A. degree and is from Clearwater, Florida.  In addition to his portrait work, he enjoys teaching photographers through seminars, private consultation and audio "Tips and Tricks" podcasts.  You can follow Tom on Twitter @ PortraitMan.  Tom now lives in Gulf Shores, Al. but continues to work in Atlanta on a limited basis.
