    I worked with Thom Wolf Photo & Video for over 7 years while I worked in the development department of a nonprofit in Washington DC, SOME, and he continues to work for the organization today. I hired Thom for both his photography, video and editing skills. He is comfortable working on many different projects, including athletic events, galas, portraits, storytelling, promotional materials, interviews and more. I was particularly impressed with Thom's ability to put individuals at ease when he was photographing or filming them. He would take time to get to know his subject, explain to them any of the equipment he was using and answer any questions they had. When plans changed last minute or there were unexpected delays, he never had an issue and was always very accommodating to our needs. One of our annual events, the Thanksgiving Day Trot for Hunger 5k walk/run, was entirely outdoors and had a very early start time of 7:00am and every year Thom arrived ahead of schedule and prepared for any weather. Thom listened to the needs of the nonprofit and worked with us to produce photographs and video footage that are still used today. I would recommend Thom for his expertise, professionalism and attention to detail for any project you had in mind.

    Thom is easy-going and flexible to work with. I made a last minute request for a holiday family photo shoot and he quickly made arrangements to accommodate my request. He has a great eye and is a joy to work with. We were so pleased with our photos and are looking forward to working with him again!
