Youtube Interview with Alister Benn on Vision and Light

July 1, 2020

"This was actually the first time I'd ever spoken to TJ, and we became very good friends almost immediately. We share the same quiet, thoughtful and introspective view of life and the landscape. I love TJ's quiet, emotional and vulnerable voice.

Podcast Interview on the Landscape Photography Show with David Johnston

March 9, 2020

"I was really excited to have TJ Thorne on The Landscape Photography Show. Not only does TJ take photographs that make you stop and think, but he also has a very calming view of life. It could be because of his life experiences and some previous jobs that TJ has landed in the landscape photography field.

The more TJ Thorne and I talked about photography, the more I was able to relate to him. From the way he views photography and photos that speak to him, to the way he views creating a life that is inspiring made me come alive. At the core of our whole conversation, we dove into why do you love to take photos?" - David Johnston
