Tom Bricker is a travel photographer based in Indianapolis whose work has been published internationally in a myriad of online and print publications. His love for Walt Disney World was sparked by yearly vacations with his parents, Don and Beth. Tom and his wife, Sarah, became engaged on the beach of Disney’s Polynesian Resort in 2007, and they have visited both Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort multiple times per year since. When not taking photos in the parks, Tom enjoys relaxing on the Tomorrowland Transit Authority Peoplemover. His all-time favorite Disney characters are Dreamfinder and Figment.
Tom’s approach to the Tumblr project involved a heavy use of ultra wide angle lenses to intentionally introduce distortion and converging lines into his architectural photos. This style can give structures and domineering or dramatic look not normally seen. He also used a variety of other lenses and techniques to keep things fresh, and edited his photos with an aim toward striking a balance between realistic and fantastic.
