Hi, I'm Brandon Thomas (the one on the left), Cobalt Imaging's founder and principal photographer. My first paying photo job was in 1978, shooting for a local real estate magazine. I received photographic training in high school and college, attended photo seminars, and shot county day care programs and other public service projects as a serious amateur. I got into underwater photography in the early 1980's. An avid diver and scuba instructor, my work initially graced the trash cans of some of the finest dive boats in the world. Persistence paid off, though, leading to a 1st place in the 1994 Monterey Nikon Underwater Shootout, and a spot in the February 1995 edition of Skin Diver Magazine. As this photo taken in Honduras, C.A. attests, I'll do "whatever it takes to get the shot." The digital camera boom in the early 2000's rekindled my interest in photography (filling trash cans with 35mm film gets expensive). I began shooting semi-professionally in 2006, doing weddings, theatre, and other events: Cobalt was born.

Photography is a great challenge and creative outlet, providing me a welcome outlet from my day job as an engineer. My greatest satisfaction is seeing the looks of excitement as people relive their special experiences through these images. My goal for Cobalt Imaging is to offer photographic services in a more relaxed, personal way than typical studios can provide.

Thank you for taking the time to browse through some our portfolio material. If you are a prospective client- welcome, and I hope you enjoy these preview images. Many of the photographs you see on this website are available for purchase. Check them out under the "Fine Prints" section. Consider them if you need something special to brighten up your living or office space- but, please, not those trash cans again! Finally, if you've come here looking for shots of a recent event or portrait shoot, click through "Galleries" to find your way.
