Tom Bird is an art director who uses photography as both a personal outlet and a medium to tell stories. Born and raised in the UK, currently based in Amsterdam and working globally. 

His photographic approach was refined over a number of years spent documenting the growing skateboarding scene in the Palestinian Occupied Territories. Capturing the fragile freedoms of youth within an area of hostile military occupation helped to sharpen his sensitivity and taught him of the responsibility that comes with holding a camera.

His work has been published by the likes of i-D, Good Sport, STACK, Table Magazine, Essay Skate Mag, and exhibited as part of group shows in The Netherlands, United Kingdom and Czech Republic.
