My Best Photographs of 2016
Kennebunk Maine Website Designer, Photographer & Artist
Tom Stirling is a graphic and website designer with over a decade of experience in digital marketing.
Originally from Glasgow Scotland, he studied multimedia design at Caledonian University – widely regarded as one of the UK’s most dynamic and innovative universities. Nobel Peace Prize laureate Muhammad Yunus was installed Chancellor of the University in 2012.
In 2013 he was the winner of a national photography contest called Project Imaginat10n sponsored by Canon Cameras and overseen by director Ron Howard. Out of approximately 100,000 entries his photo was one of the finalists and eventually selected by Twitter founder Biz Stone to serve as inspiration for his million dollar budget short film “Evermore”. His work has been featured on Boston.com as well as Wired and NECN cable news.
Tom has skills in website design & development (hand coding as well as CMS experience in Drupal & WordPress), graphic design (Adobe Products including Photoshop and Illustrator), digital photography, video editing, social media & email campaigns.
"YOU CAN'T DEPEND ON YOUR EYES WHEN YOUR IMAGINATION IS OUT OF FOCUS."
Under the tutelage of Ron Howard the film was inspired by 10 winning entries from 10 different photographic themes. His photo was the winner in the category of “The Unknown”. Below you can view the film that was screened at the Lincoln Center for Performing Arts red carpet premier in Manhattan NYC – which Tom attended in late October 2013.
