Tom Loeser has been shooting cars since he was a child, not for money but because he loved them. His mentor was his father who took him on "lots" of shoots with him when he went photographing nature. Tom's working career has been varied, shooting for the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, now known as CAL Fire, and photographing weddings. He went to Los Angeles Trade Technology College for photography for three years and followed that with two years at Platt College studying graphic design. That led to a job running "Z-Cube", a digital photo lab, from 1996 to early 1998. Then a Los Angeles-based trade show company hired him to design their booths and graphics, he was stolen away by a competitor to do the same job. In 2002, the Long Beach Grand Prix took him on as photographer and graphic designer and that continued a year until Northrup Grumman Corporation stole him to do photography, covering everything from grip-and-grins to stuff he cannot talk about. Tom kept his ties with the Grand Prix, returning as photographer and then chief photographer for race weekends through the present. He left Northrup in 2012 to begin a freelance career. Art of the Corvette is his first book.
