Tom really loves shooting picture around Lake Superior because of the seasons and weather which makes for great photography that leads to color photography. The type of high resolution color prints produced are colorful because more color techniques are added to the image to bring out colors and especially more detail to every print.
The photography by Tom Kelly is intended to evoke memories for people who travel through and around Michigan. When you view the images of the beaches, the islands, the tall beach grass, or the waves on Lake Superior, you may remember a warm place where you or you family stopped to picnic or had a beach fire at sunset. Those are wonderful memories on Lake Superior.
The son of a physics professor and art teacher, Tom was born in Marquette Michigan and always exposed to arts, crafts and the wilderness of Michigan Upper Peninsula. At the age of twelve, Tom was introduced to a black and white darkroom and was immediately captivated by the magic that took place, processing film and producing a finished print.
Years later, Tom now has the the experience of black and white, color printing, lab work and now the digital age of photography. After photography and business school, Tom started a photographic business, working with the Ann Arbor Art Association teaching artists how to shoot slides of their art work to present to galleries.
Tom’s next venture was Aerial photography – up in the sky, taking pictures of land development, progress shots of construction projects and photos for realtors needing aerial shots of hard to see homes. It was 1982 when Tom took on a new challenge to aerial photograph his favorite football team the Wolverines of the University of Michigan and the Michigan Football Stadium from the air. Many of these photos would end up being used in Toms stock photo shop. After that, Tom then spent some time in the biomedical department of the University of Michigan doing both camera and lab work.
