Tom Weber, the managing director, photographer and producer at MILPICTURES, spent three years between 1985 and 1987 as a “Jagdkampf” scout sniper in the Austrian Army and completed courses in survival, guerrilla warfare, among others. After his period of service in the armed forces, Tom completed a study course in film and photography from 1988 to 1993 and established his own film production company, Orange Films. He has always thought outside the box and has gained numerous prestigious international awardsand prizes for his advertising videos. Tom sold his company at the end of the 1990s and worked as a freelance art director, producer and photographer until 2006 to broaden his artistic horizon.

In 2006, the artist came full circle and found his way back to his roots. His goal was for his new company, „MILPICTURES“, to film military and police Special Forces with a previously unknown intensity, quality and drama. Within two years „MILPICTURES by Tom Weber“ had established itself as one of the world’s best-knownmilitary photographers for staged military photography. Numerous international Special Forces and well-known arms manufacturers meanwhile count among his customers.

However, MILPICTURES has made a name for itself not only through its unique quality but also through its honest and open approach towards its customers. Click HERE to see a few photos from Tom’s active military service. Click HERE to see Tom at work.
