A native of Indiana, Tom Casalini first attended Indiana University, but went on to receive his degree in 1972 from the New York Institute of Photography, the oldest and largest school of its kind in the world.

After a period of freelance work out of Atlanta, Georgia, he returned to his Midwestern roots as Indiana’s official state photographer. 

In November of 1973, he opened a private studio in Zionsville, Indiana, a few miles outside of the state’s capital, Indianapolis.  In this charming, historic, two-story brick building nestled along the quaint town’s Main Street, he has maintained his homebase ever since.

It is from here that he focuses on creating his master portraiture work – as well as developing his special projects – reaching a range of local, national, and international clients.

Casalini brings to his craft a unique warmth, a depth of understanding of the human spirit, and an “individuality” that has earned him an enviable reputation.
