Tomas is a 23 year old award-winning filmmaker, photographer and conservationist with a love for the outdoors and everything that it holds. He began taking photos in 2017 after he bought his first DSLR and soon found himself transferring out of biology at Pennsylvania State University to pursue digital media at Sacred Heart University. 

 

Tomas's work has found its way into PBS Nature, the National Audubon Society, ESPN, Tamron Optics, and others which have allowed him to land sponsorships with companies like Tamron USA and partnerships with Canon USA. Tomas is currently working on projects with PBS Nature and the Smithsonian Channel and represents his university as an ambassador on Amazon Prime's The College Tour. 

As an avid environmentalist, Koeck puts the subject first, this allowed him to be endorsed by the Connecticut Audubon Society as an ethical nature photographer. Tomas has won awards in the environmental field such as the University of Connecticut Environmental Issues Award for his work in invasive plant research and currently is on the board of directors at the Connecticut Audubon Society. Tomas also writes a bi-weekly column in the Easton Courier called "Sunday Nature Walk" which focuses on a new environmental topic each week.

Koeck strives to be involved and integrated in the communications field. He is currently a YouTube partner and is an inductee in the Lambda Pi Eta National Communication Association Honors Society. In 2020, Tomas was awarded for "Excellence in Journalism" by the Society of Professional Journalists. Other honors include several Undergraduate Research Institute Awards such as the Campus Choice Award as well as the MAX Presentation Award and first place finishes at the Connecticut Audubon Migration Madness Photo Contest.
