This is the home of all things Tommy Mac! We have classes at Tommy's shop, community discussions, galleries of images and much more. Have a look around and leave us a note!



Here is a sneak peak at some video shot in the old shop. It is for a new video subscription series I'm putting together. I had tons of requests for more instructional videos and felt it was time to take a deep dive. Thanks for all of your comments and support! Have a look and let me know what you think! More info to come as we roll this out.
