I am a self taught photographer and have been full time for over 30 years. My work is sold primarily at juried art shows in the East, local galleries, through my website (tomwachs.com) and as note cards, posters and publications of the DC area. My work is represented at the stock agency IStock.com. I also work with local and regional interior designers, publishers and corporations. I was the principal photographer for the book Washington, DC, participating photographer in the book Country, U.S.A. and have worked for or have contributed to many publications including the National Park Service, AAA, The Smithsonian Institute, The Folger Shakespeare Library, etc.
I print all of my images with archival inks and papers.
My interests vary from astronomy to local Washington, D.C. scenes.
I prefer challenging lighting/ weather conditions for the most drama and interest.
