Hailing from Boulder, Colorado, Thomas Snider (B.F.A., photography, 2015) has always let nature be the driving force for his photography. He quickly merged his interest of the natural world into his work with fashion. As a Scholastic Art Portfolio Gold Key award winner in high school, Snider knew he wanted to pursue a career in this creative field and attended SCAD. Throughout his student years, he photographed many subjects and works of fellow fashion majors on his visit to SCAD Lacoste in the south of France. Snider continues to unite the beauty of nature with high-end fashion editorials in Atlanta, Georgia.
