Tom Grimes began his career as a photographer after graduating from Kenyon College where he received a degree in Fine Arts. He moved to New York City and started as a photography assistant to fashion photographers Mike Reinhardt, Gordon Munro and Michael O’Brien. He traveled the world working on fashion shoots and major advertising campaigns.
Going out on his own, Tom’s early career stayed true to his fashion roots, shooting for W, Seventeen Magazine, Harper’s Bazaar, Bill Blass and others. His assignments also included black and white printing for Richard Avedon.
Tom’s love for architecture eventually led him in that direction and that is now the focus of his work. In addition to his work with interior designers, architects and design studios he photographs editorial pieces for The New York Times, Chanel, House Beautiful, Design NJ and Princeton Magazine.
