Thom started to explore the world of photography, from the moment he got his first camera on his sixteenth birthday. As soon as he started, his interests spread and soon Thom found a different angle to his work. The capability of finding the right image brought many requests from local businesses and startups. Dots were connected and "Studio Thom Schuurman" was born.
Thom studied Banking and Insurance but he could never let go of creativity. Internationally he gained valuable work experience at PayPal Europe (Ireland), ABN AMRO (Hong Kong) and Studio34 / BBI Media (Australia). Living abroad didn’t only bring Thom cultural and social skills; he learned about customer experiences, Marketing &Sales techniques and gained hands-on experience on photo & video productions.
