Thomas Heaton

Brand Ambassador: Thomas Heaton


Digitalab are excited to announce our newest Brand Ambassador is the unbelievably talented Thomas Heaton!

Thomas Heaton is a landscape photographer & content creator. Using the YouTube platform, Thomas documents his landscape photography & travel adventures. His popularity comes from his extremely honest & unpolished approach to film making & photography.


He is an outdoor enthusiast and aims to showcase the beauty of the great outdoors through his photography.

“I love being outside and I love the never-ending challenge of trying to portray ‘that feeling’ – you know, the warm evenings at twilight, the sense of isolation when you have a mountain to yourself, the sound of waves lapping the shore of an empty beach. My images are all about the outdoors and telling a story.”

Thomas’ YouTube channel has over 6.5million views, his photography has been published nationally and internationally and he has appeared on national television including the BBC’s ‘One Show’. You can view his video on Selling Prints (which he filmed here at Digitalab!) below. If you are interested in the large format printing and fine art printing that Thomas uses us for then make sure to head over to the site for further details.

You can view more of his work over on his website HERE and you can subscribe to his YouTube channel HERE
Thomas will be launching an exhibition of his work here at Digitalab later in the year and we have some exciting joint projects in the works. Below is one of Thomas’ videos that he filmed here at Digitalab focusing on producing and selling limited edition prints.


Human Traces: Cuba

York Place Studios Exhibition Launch

On the 13th of July Digitalab are delighted to be hosting the opening of York Place Studios first street photography exhibition; Human Traces – Cuba.

The friendship, warmth and reflective patriotism of a people are captured amongst the tarnished bold colours and fading opulence of Castro’s Cuba in this optimistic collection by photographers Liam and Dominique Shaw. Photographed during the first visit of a sitting U.S. President in over 90 years and shortly before the death of its iconic revolutionary leader, the spirit of this Island nation in flux is found not in its turbulent politics but in the eyes and hearts of its citizens; proud yet tired, optimistic yet cautious.

“The people of Cuba are extraordinary. Many live with little but are proud of what they have and in the often hostile world of the street photographer we were privileged to be welcomed so warmly and openly into their lives and even into their homes. In a city filled with extraordinary architecture, streets lined with classic 40’s and 50’s cars and an air of faded opulence and a forgotten time, we quickly realised that Havana is not about any of these things, it is about its citizens. So we found a ‘casa particular’ in the heart of the city and explored Havana street by street, with a small Easter weekend excursion to UNESCO world heritage site Trinidad to experience a different side of Cuba.”

The Exhibition opens on July the 13th at 6pm. Entry is free and Liam and Dom will be on hand to discuss their work along with staff from Digitalab and FujiFilm.
