Tómas Örn Tómasson - Director of Photography
Tómas Örn Tómasson Tómas started working as Director of Photography in 2002. Before he fully committed to working in the film industry he studied history in the University of Iceland and also in the University of Copenhagen where his passion for the film media grew every day. It was always his intention to write, direct, produce and shoot documentaries, but he got so fascinated by telling a story through the lens that everything else needed to wait. Tómas currently lives in Iceland with his wife and three lovely daughters. In his spare time he play golf and ride around on his snowboard or Honda CB´71 motorcycle.
