|A.T. “Tom” Willet has been a Tucson resident since 1971, when his family left Hinsdale, Illinois. He attended Pima Community College where he studied photography with Luis Carlos Bernal and Jeffrey Muir Hamilton, and also met Jeff Smith. He also attended the University of Arizona and briefly studied film at NYU. Willett began his career at the Tucson Citizen and went on to become the youngest photographer on contract to Imagebank, which at the time was the leading photo stock agency in the United States. His advertising work includes the 1997 national Omega watch campaign. Willett’s work has been popular in Europe, including a book cover for Harriet Lerner’s Pouvoir Créateur de la Colère and posters in Switzerland and France. In 2000 the Royal Mail Society chose one of his lightning photographs, “Lightning, Titan Missile Site, Marana Arizona” for a British postage stamp. In 2004 his work was chosen for the cover of the Weather Channel Calendar. He has worked as a contract photographer at Alamy.com and web site designer in recent years. Willett’s work is in the University of Arizona Special Collections.
