Tom Hull is a professional photographer based in Frome, Somerset, UK. Frome is a small town with a very creative 'making' vibe. We have a stall at Frome Independent Market each month.
Tom wanted to capture the makers, businesses and humanity of Frome in portraits, and created #portraitoffrome as a personal project. I was browsing and stopped dead. This is very much something FRAHM is into. Real people, real lives, shown beautifully. Many of those shown are shared friends - it's a small world indeed.
From this one Instragram browse I got in touch with Tom and now we're working together on new images for FRAHM, coming in the next few weeks!
...Man creates thing he loves. another man sees this, likes it, spreads it, they work together, more people see it, it spreads - the world turns a little easier...
Please share Tom's work and check out more. Nick.
Grab him on @tomhullphoto, @portraitoffrome or his website.

THE BICYCLE ACADEMY
Nick: I wanted to start with this set because founder Andrew Denham is a very important part of my recovery from mental illness. We've often given each other advice, as fellow small business owners and as friends. He's the one with the iridescent smile.
The Bicycle Academy do many things in the world of bike frame creation. Mainly, they teach lay people like me to build beautiful steel frames. They have created many of the world's most celebrated cycling artisans. People fly from around the world to learn here. No bull.
Kindness & Craft.

I've known Ant since my puppy Lily (now aged 9) pissed on his Brighton design studio floor in 2010. He was very nice about it.
Now we are both out in Somerset, both had a good kicking from life's slings and arrows. Ant occasionally works on FRAHM too.
A graphic designer, multiple brand & business starter, maker of beautiful prints - he's also an early morning runner with Lukka The Pointer (similarly hairy) and likes trucker caps a LOT (a lot).
