Thomas R. Fletcher was born and raised in Webster County, West Virginia. He graduated Webster County High School in the summer of 1977 (a year early, because he couldn’t wait to explore the world). In 1982, he launched his career as a freelance photographer—and has been traveling the world since.

Thomas has been taking photos as long as he can remember. The first was of the tree-shaded, moss-covered banks of a spring, deep in the mountains—where his grandmother drew her water. He was less than 18 months old. He made a mental snap-shot of that green, peaceful location that he carries with him to this day. That mossy, green place of solitude brought a special feeling of peacefulness to his spirit—a feeling he often seeks to repeat in seeking new images.

It wasn’t for another nineteen years that Thomas realized he could permanently capture and share those scenes of beauty he had been mentally capturing—through the medium of a camera. Completely self-taught in photography, his life’s passion to capture and share the beauty of the world was birthed with that first camera.

Today you will see a majority of green and blue colors in his work. His love of nature and solitude are captured in those images. He seeks to transport the viewer to that peaceful serenity he felt while making the image. He hopes his work inspires others to notice the beauty that surrounds them, to take the time to be still and peaceful, to quiet the soul for just a bit.
