Growing up in his native Austria, Thomas cultivated an artistic sensibility inspired by the European culture that surrounded him. He sees the world through photography and film accompanied by sound, and has established himself as one of the world’s leading culinary photographers, cinematographers, and directors – shooting extensive campaign work for over two decades between Vienna and New York.
Thomas’ 20 signature cookbooks for globally renowned chefs showcase his passion. He captures the extraordinary creations of Dominique Ansel, Daniel Boulud, David Bouley, and many more. His deep knowledge and passion for food has led to work with Samsung, Nespresso, Uncle Ben’s, Publix, and Panera.
He is a founder of TASTE in Motion – a directing and creative collective capable of small to large-scale productions on an international scale – with bases of operation in New York City, Los Angeles, and Vienna.
