Who is the man behind the camera
I was born in South West France, between Bordeaux and Toulouse. At the age of 18, eager to travel and make something of my life, I moved to England where I worked in prestigious hotels and restaurants for a few years before leaving for the United States where I would meet my wife to be.
In 2003, I came back to France to study computer engineering and build a career around it in Britany.
In 2007, I finally moved to Edinburgh Scotland to join Adobe where my passion for photography took off.
In 2012, while evolving within Adobe, I created Tom Migot Photography and started teaching photography on the internet, seminars and private groups across the UK.
In summer 2016, I decided to leave Adobe to pursue my photography career, full time. None of this would have been possible without the great love and support from my devoted wife and amazing daughter Skye (like the Scottish isle).
Photography, a long term relationship
Photography has always enabled me to keep a tangible proof of my journeys around the world from Western Europe to America, from Africa to Eastern Europe. Scotland is now my home and undeniably also a fantastic place for photography. From the Scottish Borders to the Highlands, great photography opportunities are just around the corner. Photography has opened my horizon to new lands, cultures and people while unleashing the inner desire to express myself creatively.
Over the years, I have used many cameras from the simple paper-built disposable one to the most advanced Digital SLR. I have learnt from each of them and would not be the professional photographer I am today without that journey. I take great pride in my craft and only use the best gear on the market to guarantee my clients the best compelling photographs they deserve.
Today I rely on the Canon professional equipment:
- Canon 5D III
- Canon 5D IV
- Canon 24mm TS-E f3.5 L II
- Canon 24-70mm f2.8 L IS USM II
- Canon 70-200mm f2.8 L IS USM II
- Canon 85mm f1.2 USM L
- Canon 100mm f2.8 L
