About this pro

How does your service stand out?

I specialize in corporate, editorial, and creative headshot portraits. I shoot using available outdoor lighting and/or in a studio. My studio lights also travel with me on location. In a market saturated with digital photographers, only a few have the vision and knowledge to specialize in the traditional craft of film photography; however, I will also shoot digitally if requested. If you're interested in portraits with more pleasing overall color, tonality, and texture contact me. I also offer traditional black and white images that will stand out and rival other photographers that only specialize in digital.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

My photography formats are: 35mm, 120, and 4x5 film (Color & B&W). My skills run the full gamut in the print and digital darkroom. Negatives can be scanned via high resolution scanner, images onto a CD. We can set up something completely custom as well. The possibilities are truly endless. What I enjoy the most is collaboration.

    We were doing a fashion photo shoot. Thomas picked fantastic backgrounds to match each of my designs. He sent me Photoshop pictures, and made all of the modifications of them I requested. I have never hired a photographer before and knew little about posing. He suggested many different positions and helped me become comfortable with the poses.

    I went to another photographer for a business headshot and was very unhappy with the result. My experience with Thomas Krueger was completely different. He put in the time and effort to make sure my pictures came out great. I felt he really cared that I got the shots I was looking for. He even had a tablet which showed the pictures as they were taken so I could give feedback. He was also able to put me at ease, which shows up in the pictures. I couldn’t be happier with his work. I would recommend his services for any type of photography.

    Had a great experience, Thomas is easy to work with and has a professional set up. He really worked with me to make sure I got the shots I was looking to get, and edited the shots so that they looked perfect. Very happy with the result, would recommend.

    "Last Spring Thomas Krueger realized a specific work for the magazine that I direct here in Italy. It's a quarterly print publication about photography and culture, and he had his image on the front cover and a 12 page spread in the June issue dedicated to Identity, developing it talking about his city, Seattle. I love his work, it's inspired and poetic in his conceptual way of presenting the argument he choose. In my opinion, Thomas is a complete artist, and not just a photographer. Its language is complex and yet very understandable, it comes to the heart of feelings. This last statement of mine has nothing to do with his work, but I want to underline it the same: Thomas is also a beautiful person, very generous and sensitive".

    I utilized Krueger Photography to create a profession portrait which I needed as part of joining a corporate team. The experience was all that I could have hoped, and more. Thomas patiently and expertly produced outstanding photographs. I could not have been more pleased. The follow up was also outstanding, as all desired formats were created for viewing and transmission.

    Thomas is an excellent photographer! He did a portrait photo of me and I'm able to use it for all my professional work. He made sure to pose me in the most flattering way so the photo would be to my liking. I was really lucky to have him photograph me. Thank you, Thomas!

    I had a business portrait with Thomas. He was professional and easy-going throughout the session. He has a creative approach, and he was more open to my input than other photographers. It never felt rushed, or like the "sweatshop" photography that I've had before. His rates are higher than average, but I received a portrait worthy of a magazine cover.

    Thomas is great to work with. He is very creative and truly enjoys his work. I highly recommend Thomas for his strong technical skill as well as his upbeat personality.
