Artist Bio

Tom Wise is a landscape and nature photographer currently living in the “Land of Enchantment,” New Mexico.

Tom spent his adult life as an educator in Nebraska, returning to photography as he neared retirement. He discovered the joys of creating alternative process photographic prints at a gum bichromate workshop taught by the inimitable Christina Z. Anderson. As a result of the workshop, Tom has strived to refine his processes in gum printing as well as cyanotype, kallitype and combinations of these mediums.

Tom’s prints were accepted in the “Altered Reality” juried show at the Lightbox Photographic Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. He is also featured as one of the contemporary artists in the book “Digital Negatives with QuadTone RIP: Demystifying QTR for Photographers and Printmakers” by Ron Reeder and Christina Z. Anderson.
