About Tom Ferris


    Tom was born and raised in New York City in 1959, where he studied visual and liberal arts at the City University of New York, before heading west in 1979. After working and living in Yellowstone National Park for several years, Tom settled in Bozeman, Montana to live and study photography more earnestly. He received his B.A. in Photography from the school of Arts and Architecture, Montana State University, in 1994.

   Since building his darkroom and studio in 1995, Tom has worked as an Archival Photographer for  the Montana Historical Society in Helena, Montana. He runs his own small studio in Helena, with a focus on documentation of artwork, and continues to pursue his own vision of the landscape in and around Montana, as well as in his travels.

   Tom’s work has been published in Big Sky Journal, Metropolitan Home, Sports Afield, and Montana Magazine, and he is the photographer for the book “Hand Raised:Historic Barns of Montana”.

   Tom’s work is in many private collections in the United States and overseas, and has been collected by the Ministry of Culture in France, The Shimada Museum in Japan, the Columbia College of Photography in Chicago, and the Yellowstone Art Center in Billings, Montana.
