For over 20 years, Jim and Andy Thompson have been working side-by-side with companies of all sizes to produce attention-grabbing imagery that demands to be seen. Beyond a passion for compelling imagery and perfectly executed shoots, Thompson Creative Imaging’s masterminds Andy and Jim share something else - a last name. With Andy positioned at the camera and Jim manning the post-production, the unrelated duo have the experience, skills and easy going “can-do” attitude to make even the most ambitious commercial photography projects spring to life.

16 years in business.
At the age of eight, I discovered a Rolleiflex TLR camera in my father’s gadgets. The experience of viewing the world upside-down and low to the ground was fascinating to me, and ever since then photography has been my passion and my calling. I moved on to shoot with SLRs seeing right side up, large format view cameras seeing upside down and now with digital SLRs. No matter what equipment I was using, I have had some great experiences with many people over the years. I have been shooting professionally for for almost 35 years, since my first job with Huffy Bikes in 1986. All of these experiences, different people and cities I have worked in, helped lead to Thompson Creative Imaging which was born in 2004 with my partner Jim.
I have a passion for every job I do and image created. Even though I have had my images seen around the world, they will probably never hang in an art gallery. It is my art. I’m proud of it along with everyone involved in the process.
My biggest passion outside of work is to travel. I have been to Canada, the Caribbean Islands, Italy and across this great nation from coast to coast. All with my camera in hand! Being a friend, father and husband is my only greater gift.
Finding a Jackalope is not easy let alone one prepared for Covid wearing a mask that you can ride. But
when you can’t find one or other hard to come by items. That is where my passion lies in making it happen.
Through retouching I have made the simple better and the impossible seem real.
