ABOUT

Tom Pietrasik Photo: Tom Pietrasik Wisconsin, USA November 26th 2012

I’m a photographer & video journalist based in New York City.

My photographs have appeared in The Financial Times magazine, National Geographic Adventure magazine, and Marie Claire. I also photograph for UN agencies including UNICEF and the World Health Organization and NGOs like ActionAid, Oxfam and Save the Children.

I make films for development agencies including Oxfam, newspaper web-sites like The New York Times and The Guardian and for corporate clients.

London’s National Portrait gallery featured my work as part of the 2008 Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize. The British Council and UNICEF hosted an exhibition of my photographs depicting the lives of tsunami-affected children in Chennai, India and Noorderlicht exhibited my photographs as part of their Photofestival in The Netherlands.

My film Saloon was part of the official selection for the London Short Film Festival 2012, the Atlanta Film Festival 2012 and the Florida Film Festival 2012. Saloon was also shortlisted for the 2011 Virgin Media Shorts Competition.

I am available for editorial and commercial photography & film assignments. You can reach me by email here.
