Tom Bol is an editorial and commercial photographer based in Colorado. Specializing in adventure sports, portraits and travel, his editorial assignments have ranged from photographing mountaineering rangers on Alaska's Mt. McKinley to sea kayaking in Honduras. He is a contributing photographer at Canoe and Kayak magazine, a regular contributor for Digital Photo Magazine and Outdoor Photographer magazine, and his images and stories are published worldwide by a variety of clients including Backpacker, Bike, Forbes, LA Times, Men's Journal, MSNBC, National Geographic Adventure, Outdoor Photographer, Outside, Runner's World, Rock and Ice, Sailing, Sunset and the Wall Street Journal.
Tom's commercial work varies from shooting national ads for camera companies to creating images for worldwide tourism campaigns. Tom was on the list of National Geographic Adventure's "50 of America's Top Visionaries" for his photography, and Nikon, Elinchrom, Manfrotto, and Lowepro have featured his work. SanDisk memory cards are critical in his work. He depends on their reliability in extreme environments from arctic cold to desert heat. Tom also relies on their speed and fast performance. Many of his subjects are fast moving sports where he needs a fast card to capture the action.
