Then after I had done as much as I could with the b&w conversion, I dodged and burned to bring out the contrast and highlights. I worked with a very small brush and worked every leaf, seed and nut individually. Sometimes it’s tempting to use a global tool such as the contrast adjuster, but that affects everything in the image equally and it rarely can produce a look equal to good dodging and burning.

I will giving my presentation “Why Black and White” to the Broomfield Photo Club on Tuesday, April 26th at 6:30 pm. 

At 14 years of age, I knew that I was destined to be a fine art photographer. While living in Rochester, NY, I stumbled across an old building associated with George Eastman, which led to my reading of his biography. Before I even completed the book, I knew that I was going to be a photographer and for the next 10 years, photography was my complete existence. If I wasn’t taking pictures or in the darkroom, I would spend countless hours looking at every book and image I could find. There was nothing in my life except photography.

Welcome to Cole Thompson Photography. My goal is to create black and white fine art photography which reflects my personal vision. As you browse the site, you’ll see a wide range of subjects, from portfolios such as The Ghosts of Auschwitz, Harbinger, Melting Giants and Easter Island, as well as many of my favorite individual images, such as The Angel Gabriel. Please contact me with any questions or to purchase archival quality prints, which I produce here in my studio.

He had to take a number of flights to reach Easter Island, and during a long day, fell asleep. He dreamed of meeting these mysterious stone figures. Not only that, his dream included inviting the Moai to come and sit for a formal portrait. He imaged that they would be aloof and unapproachable since they had suffered greatly over the years.

“I had not intended to photograph during my tour of the camps but after being there a few minutes, I felt compelled. With every step I wondered about the people whose feet had walked in exactly the same footsteps. I wondered if their spirits still lingered there today.

Although Thompson sells his work, he feels that if his became a professional artist trying to make a living, his passion would be lost. This is not to say that he is not glad if someone purchases one of his images. Most of his sales are direct from his website www.colethompsonphotography.com.

If you’re in the Denver area on Thursday, September 8th, I’d like to invite you to join the SW Photo Club of Denver as I attempt to convert all color photographers to Black and White!

An important early influence in my life and my art was the poem “Invictus” by William Ernest Henley.

Cole Thompson’s “Moai Sitting for Portraits” will be on display for the month of June at the Lincoln Gallery, 429 N. Lincoln Ave.

January 27, 2013 2:00pm Special presentation by Photographer Cole Thompson

If you’re in the area, I’d love to see you. And if you do attend and we’ve communicated before, please do come up and say hello! At my last Denver presentation there were two internet friends in the audience whom I did not get to meet and I felt bad about that.

For me, the step of converting the image to black and white is a critical part of fulfilling my Vision. That’s why I never accept the default b&w conversion or simply desaturate the image. I know what I want the image to look like, Photoshop does not.

His trip to Iceland is a good example of the lack of any agenda. A rental car was all his needed to drive the ring road that circumnavigates this island-country. When night approached, he discovered a lack of hotels in the small towns and stayed with families that advertised that they had a room.

P.S. There’s something else interesting about the before and after image…it’s the sharpness. Did you notice that the b&w version seems so much sharper than the color image? It’s what I call “apparent sharpness” and it comes from contrast. This image has not been sharpened.

It was a rainy day up in the Colorado mountains and I decided to shoot indoors. I collected some seeds and leaves and placed them on this great wooden plate that I had purchased for such an occasion. I was shooting on the kitchen table using available light, which was the kitchen ceiling lamp.

At age 17, Cole Thompson read a book called “Aku Aku” by the famous Norwegian explorer Thor Heyerdahl. In the process, Thompson became fascinated with the stone figures called Moai that dot Eastern Island.

What’s the presentation about? Well, it starts off talking about “Why Black and White” and I believe that I make a compelling case that b&w is good for any type of image or genre of photography. But what the presentation is really about, is finding your own Vision, following your Passion, forgetting about what others are doing and creating images that you love.

A lot of this image’s “look” was obtained in the black and white conversion process, where I play with the color sliders to bring out or hide details. Click on the image above and look at the leaf just left of center, see how the veins have been brought out? The green slider had a lot of affect on this image.

Thompson spent two weeks touring the island, taking photographs. He modified his images to appear like a studio setting with a black background. Unlike other images of these stone faces, his technique focuses the viewer on the facial expressions and their rustic nature.

Even at this early age I found myself drawn to a particular style of image, one that would literally cause a physical reaction in me. They were dark images created by Adams, Weston, Bullock and others. I knew that I was destined to create such images.

But of course, the reality is that the Moai weight many tons and are spread all over the island. In this Polynesian society during a revolt, most were toppled and defaced.

To fill his lifelong dream, Thompson booked a series of flights in January 2015 to the island — a relatively hard place to reach.

The challenge was to take that boring color image and transform it into the black and white image that’s in my head.

For me, a black and white image is so much more interesting than a color one!

Cole Thompson Photography: Classic Images in Black and White

I think the color image is rather boring and unremarkable. At first glance and without Vision, you might be tempted to throw it out. But I had a Vision of what it was to be.

THE GHOSTS OF AUSCHWITZ-BIRKENAU In the Museum Atrium Thru February 6, 2013    

Thanks all, I do love giving this presentation because I truly believe in the message I am delivering!

I am often asked, “Why black and white?” I think it’s because I grew up in a black-and-white world. Television, movies and the news were all in black and white. My heroes were in black and white and even the nation was segregated into black and white. My images are an extension of the world in which I grew up.

Out of the night that covers me, Black as the Pit from pole to pole, I thank whatever gods may be For my unconquerable soul. In the fell clutch of Circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud.

In his dream, he realized that some were too large for a studio, 33 feet in height, while others were fragile. Only a few would show up at first, but as the word spread, more would come.

When it comes to a photographic trip, Thompson simply takes off without hotel reservations or even a plan. This is part of his spontaneity and the reason why his images are so striking.

In addition to speaking on “Why Black and White” I’ll also be discussing my workflow, my four essential tools, working on “cohesive bodies of work” and my favorite topic: Vision.

4.  Hover over the web address (green above) and you’ll see a faint +1 appear on the end of the address (red above).  Please click that +1 for a bunch of entries!  It took me less than 3 minutes to do five pages worth of clicking.

Over the past few decades, many of these enigmatic stone figures have been set upright and restored by teams from a variety of countries.

The presentation is 1 hour and 15 minutes long and as is my tradition, three prints will be given away at the end of the presentation.

5.  You cannot imagine how much that will help my search rankings and how grateful I’d be.

Thompson talks about his visit to the World War II Nazi death camp, Auschwitz. He walked in the very steps where Jews were taken to die. It was emotional and he could not stand to see the piles of shoes and glasses removed from those that perished. Outside, he set up his camera for a long exposure, and as visitors walked by, their images were blurred much like the ghosts of Auschwitz.

The experience photographer Cole Thompson had during his visit at the Nazi death camp, Auschwitz, was emotionally draining. His image was created using a long exposure with visitors passing along the very road where Jews were lead to their death.
