That is pretty darn amazing and we are honored to ask Tom a few questions about the different aspects of his life. With a very mature thinking, Tom explained what photography means to him, “why fire” and gave some piece of advice for the newbies interested in this subject. Hold on for a “hot” photographic ride!

Before and After Shots of Joggers Last summer, Sacha Goldberger decided he would take on a very interesting project. He assembled a team who helped him create an outdoor studio at Bois de Boulogne, a park located near Paris that's 2 1/2 times the size of New York's Central Park. He stopped joggers, asking them for a favor - would they sprint for him and then pose right after for his camera?
