Providing professional photography services since 1994

My passion for photography began as a child. At age six my grandmother gave me my first camera, a Brownie. I took it along on a class trip, and the love affair began.

Always a hobby thereafter, the passion came to fruition as an opportunity arose to photograph NASCAR racing for a news publication. From there, came news media jobs and work with Fortune 500 companies. Photography responsibilities included studio work, sponsor hosted hospitalities, portraits, and "on track" action. It was always an honor when images I had captured were used on magazine covers and in published books.

With Tom Whitmore Photography and Performance MotorArt, you can expect that same level of perfection, attentiveness, and creativity that earned many awards from The National Motorsports Press Association. Now after many years on the road, it's time to stay home and go local! We are based in Chester, VA and willing to travel.

Another aspect offered is  framing and matting. In 1994, I earned certification from RMD Framing School, Charlotte, NC. Preservation and acid-free  materials are used to preserve your precious and special memories to ensure a long life. Your photos, posters, and certificates will be done right.
