How well do you know your colleagues? With today’s work demands and schedules it’s feasible you spend more time with them than your family (horrifying, I know). And while we may “catch a drink” or meet them socially from time-to-time, it’s hard to know them really well.

There are always surprises.

In the Beijing office of Kreab Gavin Anderson are a number of framed photographs. These showcase the beauty of China from the natural landscapes to architecture ancient and cutting-edge. The photographs here are by the same professional – my colleague Tom. (Click on the images to see them full screen.)

Thomas Adams is a defence analyst by training and now a member of our Public Affairs team in China. He’s artfully transitioned from writing research reports on a nation’s defence systems to helping clients navigate the government and regulatory regimes in China.

But that’s not all Tom does.

Two years ago Tom picked up a high quality camera and began capturing what he saw. He described to me the transcendental moment when you’re looking through the viewfinder waiting for the perfect moment. It seems many of those times are in the early morning as this range of photographs showcases the stunning light of dawn.

In a nod to his French-Canadian heritage Tom signs his artworks ‘Thomas Gaston’. Perhaps that’s to separate his work like and art fame? Regardless you can find a broad selection of his works on his Flickr page.

Alternatively you can leave a comment. With such a positive review of his work, I am sure he’ll check the comments to see what you say.

Please – tell Thomas what you think of his photographs. I think they are AMAZING!
