About me

Hi! My name is Tom Balazs (pronounced BA-laaajjjsh) and I am a photographer. I also work in the wine industry in Northern Michigan on the Leelanau Peninsula. If you haven’t heard of us, you should really check us out! I work at Forty-Five North and a few years ago, we needed quality wine bottle images for our brand new website. So I sat down with our web developer and asked how I could help. We found some examples online, I did some test shots, and the next thing I knew I was shooting our entire catalog. After perfecting my process and experimenting a bit, I decided to offer the same high quality images to the rest of the wine industry, wherever you may be located. My passion is to create pretty images while manipulating light, and using light as a tool. Experimentation is a lot of fun for me, and I would love to share that with you.

I would love the opportunity to hear from you and find out how I can help call attention to your product, which you are heavily invested in both financially and emotionally. I would love to help tell your story through the perspective of your bottle, so drop me a line and lets talk!
