I am a nationally published visual artist specializing in photography and cinematography. Tony Thompson Productions is based in Stillwater, Oklahoma but services individual and commercial clients nationwide. Photography specialties range from lifestyle portraits to corporate headshots and event coverage. Video specialties include everything from commercials and training videos to individual and family keepsake films and music videos.
As a cinematographer, I perform all aspects of video production, from conceptualization to lighting, sound, directing talent, shooting and editing.
As a photographer, I handle scheduling, production, execution and editing of high resolution digital images for individual and corporate clients.
Most of my professional life has been in a business management capacity, specializing in customer service. I have always had a keen understanding of how to relate to people in virtually any business environment and meet or exceed the expectations of my clients. As a visual artist, my favorite subject is people. I find the psychological aspects of my craft very fascinating. I find it challenging and rewarding to relate and empathize with my subjects in a way that enables me to capture truly unique images of them. This endeavor has brought about many wonderful opportunities to film and photograph a wide variety of subjects, ranging from celebrities and models to the most interesting “everyday" people you could ever meet! I love it. I find assignments in a commercial environment especially challenging and rewarding, as I can utilize my understanding of the needs of modern business and my creative talents to deliver unique and dynamic imagery, enabling business clients to reach their organizational goals.
