Born in Florence in 1989, Marco Tomaselli, also know as “Toma”, began studying photography at a very early age. Creativity and the desire to improve led him to attend and complete many classes and workshops all around Italy.
In 2010 he moved to London, continuing his work as a photographer and perfecting both eye and technique. After, he started to collaborate with American production companies, cultivating his american dream.
In the meantime, as a freelance cinematographer, Toma kept shooting both music videos and narrative project like Vania Baldi’s segment in the documentary “Springsteen and I” produced by Ridley Scott and distributed all around the world. Other than teaching photography, he continues to shoot for international brands in the fashion industry such as Patrizia Pepe, Antonella Piacenti and Giovannetti Design.
In 2013, at just 24 years old, he received the coveted O-1 working visa (for extraordinary ability in the arts in motion picture industry) as a cinematographer and leaves Italy to move to Los Angeles and there is where the magic was born.
The past 3 years have been filled with tremendous experience and exposure across various mediums. Some highlights include the feature film “Scumbag”, short film “Over Again”, commercials for Facebook led by oscar nominated cinematographer Hoyte Van Hoytema, music videos featuring Fedez & T-PAIN. His narrative work in feature and short films has circulated over 20+ festivals.
In 2017 he’s finally part of the prestigious International Cinematographers Guild Local 600.
