I am very pleased to highly recommend Lee Thomas for professional photography.
I have worked with Lee on the last three issues of freshAir magazine, our annual publication highlighting Rockcastle Regional Hospital's Respiratory Care Center, soon to be the largest freestanding facility of its kind in the nation. I discovered Lee via a recommendation from the University of Kentucky Healthcare, and he has proven to be a reliable partner ever since.
Lee is simply an outstanding photographer. Technically, his work is stellar, and I am speaking from 25 years of publications experience that has given me an eye for good work. He brings intangibles - one being a particular way of putting his subjects at ease during the shoot, resulting in better, more natural photos. When staging photos that might involve an event or a group dynamic, he is quick to grasp the essence of what we are attempting to communicate and making the right adjustments on the spot. Also, when I've given him a not-so-compelling visual subject or situation, and he has more often than not surprised me with what turned out to be an interesting image.
For our projects, Lee has always photographed for us using only natural light, minimizing clumsy equipment and obtrusiveness, a plus when working in a healthcare environment.
Additionally, Lee has always been dependable and very easy to work with. He shows up on time and has always delivered the finished project when promised.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Thanks for your time.
