My name is Willem Thomson and I love to take pictures. I grew up in a small town in Northern Germany. There I was part of a very creative skate- and music-scene that took me to film making and photoraphy by the age of fifteen. I shot skate-videos and did the photography for DIY skate-magazines.
In the mid 90ies I moved to Berlin. I got in touch with the music label Kitty-Yo and started a small video production company.
We were doing a monthly online show in collaboration with “Freshmilk” and some artists from the “Puppet Mastaz”. A music hip-hop projekt with puppets.
I knew, if I wanted to take my work to the next level, I had to fill my brain with knowledge and skills. Digital media production was still in its’ early stages and I wanted to be a part of it. That desire was followed by six years of further education.
I studied Media Design and Audio-Visual Media at the University of Applied Science in Berlin with focus on film production and moving images. 2008 I graduated with a diploma for camera operations.
After performing in this kind of technical and big-team section, I realised two things :
I wanted work processes to be more spontaneous and direct. Also my heart was ddefinitely still with photography.
I frequently worked as a photo assistant in big productions, to be able to finance my studies. There I learned all I needed to know.
In combination with the film lighting knowledge I gained, I felt I was ready to go.
Since 2008 I work as a freelance photographer for clients such as:
Zitty-Magazin, Die ZEIT, Goethe-Institut, HRS, MTV, VATTENFALLL, Shurkamp-Verlag, Löwenbräu,
Raumfeld, Level 47, Bundes Umwelt Minesterium and others
Send me a mail or give me a call if there is anything I can do for you.
I love my work
I love life
