Staff Changes at Photo Services


It is with some regret that I am announcing the departure of Tom Whisenand from Photo Services. Tom’s last day will be April 30.

I say “some” regret only because Tom is leaving us to open his new brewery and tap room, Indeed Brewing. Given the stuff Tom has gotten away with around here, I’m fully expecting some freebies when Indeed opens. Nothing to regret there.

In all seriousness, the evidence is everywhere at St. Thomas that Tom has produced some fantastic images. Whether it was barely making it to the plane out of Morocco for the Opus Prize, catching some sort of strange fever disease in Costa Rica, or shooting in the rain and snow here in Minnesota, Tom has encountered a variety of challenging conditions and made images that any photographer would be proud of.  Tom’s skill, drive, and infectious smile will be missed.

We should have a job posting up by the end of next week, and thanks to Tom’s generous early notice he may even have time to help train his replacement.

I’ll be by for my free beer soon enough, Tom. Good luck in your new endeavor.
