Thomas I. Morse

GPP's executive director, Thomas I. Morse started in professional photography in 1963. His photographic career background includes portrait photography, commercial, aerial, illustration, newspaper, nature, magazine, and books. Until 1978 he owned a custom color lab, a photographic sales company, a photographic art leasing company, and was curator of a photographic art gallery.

He began teaching photographic workshops on "How to shoot Color Transparencies for color printing purposes" and in the ghost town of Bodie in 1975. In 1978 he began leading photographic expeditions. This was in response to the requests of clients & friends who admired his fine art photographic work and expressed a desire to visit the areas where he shoots and to benefit from his guidance and expertise. His prints were acquired by the Bibiotheque Nationale in Paris in 1981 and again in 1992.

He has written over forty books including "Photographing Bodie", "The Photographers Field Manual", "Digital Basics for Photographers" GPP's Photographic Handbook series for workshop participants on Arches & Canyonlands, Bodie, Big Sur, Bryce, Death Valley, France, Grand Staircase, The Southwest, Tonopah , Slot Canyons, Point Reyes, Yosemite and Zion.
