Landscape - Landscape art is one of the worlds oldest art forms, dating back to the early Greeks and Romans. Italian and Dutch painters became extraordinarily talented at landscape painting originating many pictorial effects still in (photographic) use today. English and American landscape artists followed, developing their own insights, manners, techniques and methods. Tom Gamache’s heritage is the celebrated group of landscape painters and photographers who, in their work over the last 150 years, illustrate the astonishing beauty of the American West. In the tradition of these dedicated artists, the images he shares hold influence over our perceptions and heighten our experiences.

Panorama - Large scale panoramas offer a range of visual opportunities for the artist and viewer. The ultra wide panorama landscape format mimics the actual experience of sweeping scenes of narure. The eye’s natural tendency to scan the horizon coupled with the opportunity to study individual details within a scene makes for a rich and exciting visual environment. The conventionally formatted rectangular scene generally directs the eye to a few key points of interest. The wider, panoramic format invites the viewer to explore Nature’s vastness as well as the many details and points of interest within a scene.
Very large panoramic visuals enthralled mankind for thousand of years prior to the invention of photography. From the indoor wall paintings of Roman villas to the huge 360 degree indoor images of one of the most popular public entertainments of the 19th century to the mammoth oil painted western landscapes of Edwin Church and Albert Bierstadt panoramas. Now that digital imaging makes it possible to “stitch” 180 degree and even larger images the “larger than life” one piece mural art is again becoming a ever more popular and enticing format.
Architecture - Architectural photography requires a special insight into the building, the owner, the site and the intentions of the image publisher. Tom works with the architect, the building owner and the publisher to ensure that each architectural photographic image conveys the desired impression. Commissions are accepted for interior and exterior large format architectural views of business, corporate, residential and civic properties.
