Meet the Artist

Tomas is a professional photographer based in the magical archipelagos of Spain’s Canary Islands, in Gran Canaria, off northwestern Africa. He lived in Berlin for a few years but the beauty of the island and it’s people brought him back. There’s perfect light to take pictures all year round, especially winter. Now, he starts his day early morning to capture diverse landscapes of the island - black lava, white sand beaches, forests and mountains. If it’s not nature, he shoots portraits, people, places they live in or abstracts. Regardless of the subject, he focusses on finding metaphors to create a sense of mystery in his photographs. It’s this keen sense of observation along with his technical abilities that he loves sharing with others. His motto “the more you share, the more you receive”.

Explore Gran Canaria

Part of the Canary Islands just off the northwest coast of Africa, Gran Canaria has such a diverse, dramatic landscape that it’s often called a continent in miniature. From the cosmopolitan center of culture in Las Palmas, you can explore desert sands, sharply ridged mountains, and lush green forests. It’s a world of adventure unlike anywhere else, with nature that can spark your imagination and creativity.

    I always was curious about going to the Canary Islands, not knowing anything about it. I launched into this workshop with such excitement. To be able to get feedback of my work, and to work with Tomás, who had worked with my friend Judith, gave me the feeling of incredible growth as a creative individual. We explored many different areas of the island and worked on different aspects of photographyRead more

    An incredible experience. Tomás was kind, patient but also pushed me out of my comfort zone (in a good way). He adapted the sessions to my needs and experience level. Thanks for an unforgettable week!

    I enjoyed my VAWAA with Tomas Correa, not only was it a push to return to my passion of photography but I was able to explore Gran Canaria as well. I was interested in working with Tomas because I had seen his work and the beautiful way he captured the spirit of the island. He generously shared his work process and special locations to garner good images and tailored the experience to my interest Read more
