About this Episode
Tom Richmond is an amazing personality and an amazing guy. Someone who has worked with masters and newbies alike, always bringing a commitment to making beautiful images, Richmond never quits on an image or a project. He has a love of photography, editing, and as a DP, he knows how to make things work and lift the films beyond their original conception.
