Much like Scott Schuman, Tommy Ton’s name has become synonymous with street style. Not only has he made extravagant trends and glamorous people from around the world accessible to all of us, but he’s also substantially shaped the way we look at fashion, which is why we were shocked to find out that after six years of shooting for Style.com, the photographer is leaving his post. This poses many questions, like what will the photographer do next? While we don't have answers just yet, we do know that we'll definitely be missing Tommy Ton's iconic shots in the meantime. Scroll down to see the explanation he posted on his Instagram account, and be sure to tell us what you think about this news in the comments below!
So this is my Style.com sign off. I want to thank everyone over the last six years for their incredible outpour of support. I grew up glued to my computer screen living vicariously through the world of Style.com and never in a million years did I expect to become a contributor to the most relevant and influential fashion publication. It's sad to see it go but fashion is all about change and moving forward. I want to thank Dirk Standen, Nicole Phelps and Tim Blanks for mentoring me and giving me this platform. I, still to this day, pinch myself that I had this incredible opportunity and will be forever grateful to the Style.com team for allowing me to be a part of history. Last week was my last submission in the field and I was fortunate to have my friend, Nick Wooster, be the last image I took for Style.com. Many, many thanks again, Tommy http://www.style.com/street/tommy-ton/2015/spring-2016-menswear-street-style
