Thomas says that he first was drawn to the American West by the stunning scenery in and around Livingston, and the wildness of nearby Yellowstone. Through years of documenting, exploring, getting to know the character and characters that make up this great state, he came to realize that the best qualities of Montana aren’t always found on post cards. Authenticity is the real treasure of the Treasure State.
His pictures have been found in newspapers and magazines all over this state, across the country, and even across the ocean. Thomas has authored three books, most notably, Montana: Real Place, Real People.
Thomas and his family are happily settled in Bozeman, MT
