About Thomas


My name is Thomas White, born in England. I studied Photography, and Fine Art at Colchester Sixth Form College in the UK. I was trained in traditional wet black and white film photography, and I still prefer B/W to colour.

After completing my studies there I spent a year living and working in Uganda, Africa on a gap year. Whilst working in Uganda I gained acceptance for a BA (hons) Photography course at the University of Portsmouth back in the UK.

I spent the next three years studying hard and having fun at Portsmouth Uni. I did a variety of projects and learned a wide range of techniques, I also spent a period of time working as a night club photographer (which I didn’t like very much). During my course I did a few different exhibitions, and made books out of some of my projects. At the end of my three years I did an exhibition in Brick Lane, London and gained a 2:1 BA (hons) Photography degree.

After finishing my studies I returned to Uganda and started working as a freelance photographer. Since then I have set up a professional photography company based in Kampala, Uganda named Focii.
