Does you ask yourself what the co-founder of MySpace, which sold his company for $580 millions in 2005 – is doing now? The 47 years old Tom Anderson is working something that we all want to do when we’ll got a lot of money – and that is a lot of traveling.


He’s taking a lot of great pictures on his Instagram profile. According to those images, he enjoys his retirement from work. Tom Anderson sell Myspace to Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation for $580m. In 2006 Google signed a $900m deal to sell ads on Myspace. By 2007 it had 300m registered users and was being valued at $12bn. But the social network was subsequently crushed by Facebook, which launched a year after Myspace.


Everyone calls him MySpace Tom and he decided after working with the social network to dedicate himself to his great passion for photography. Now his traveling around the world and taking very beautiful pictures and upload them on Instagram, where he has 655k followers at the time we write this.


For the longest time I’ve been satisfied and chill – not really wanting more from life. 🤙 Just at peace with how I am and how the world is. 🌏 But lately I’ve felt like I want to learn and grow… I’m feeling like my teenage self again, when I was excited about picking up a new book or a new idea. I think this mostly came from friends who inspired me… They know who they are. Feeling very grateful for this change, and for the people who got my creative mojo firing. Onwards and upwards! 🚀 This shot was from yesterday’s hike on Kauai! ⛰Was moving so fast with my time-limited hiking partners that I never got a chance to take out my camera! This was shot on the iPhone 7+ and edited with built-in Apple tools and some Snapseed. After all that, I brought it into Photoshop to remove some purple noise in the shadows. Finally I made a few changes to clarity and color in IGs editor. Haha. Imagine the day when your phone camera could do everything a DSLR can do… It’s really not that far away. In many ways, the phone is better — certainly for portability and also in the way it handles different layers of depth and light. I know if I shot this on my DSLR it would have been even harder for me to process to my satisfaction. Went for a more painterly feel since it was pretty noisy and easier to edit that way?? I like it a lot !! Do you like?? 🙂 😀
