Tom Swalens Brussels Food & Drink, Still Life and Interiors photographers
Tom discovered photography with his father. The magic moments when he observed his father in the darkroom fixing images on paper were when his passion for photography was born.
While following photography courses at the NARAFI Institute in Brussels, he worked as a student in restaurant kitchens. This is how he discovered his second passion and would shape his future profession: photography and gastronomy.
For more than 15 years, Tom collaborates with advertising agencies, women’s and lifestyle magazines and publishing companies. He worked with great chefs, photographed for numerous award-winning cookbooks and worked for the three major Belgian retail companies.
Tom’s specialty is to bring food to life so each photo exhales the aromas and makes your mouth water.
