Photographer Tommy Crow began his career as a professional advertising photographer after attending the University of Georgia. He quickly became a premier advertising photographer in the United States. Crow arrived on Scenic Highway 30A, along Florida’s Gulf Coast in 2004, and hosted a series of gatherings mobilizing support for the local arts. He opened Tommy Crow Studios in Rosemary Beach and Alys Beach, in 2010 and 2015, respectively.
Crow is among those New Urbanist artists whose work may coalesce a specific coastal art movement. With the advent of Seaside as an urban alternative to typical tourism and residential development, there has been an unprecedented flowering of architecture and interior design; and subsequently of art, film, literature, and the performing arts in our area since Seaside’s inception in 1981.
