Simon Pais-Thomas hails from Santiago, Chile. About three years ago, Simon started teaching himself digital photography, using a pair of relatively inexpensive point-and-shoot cameras (a Nikon CoolPix & a Sony CyberShot), and utilizing equipment from the local college. Learning as he went along, Simon produced a body of work that quickly found a receptive audience in the photo-sharing community, Flickr— racking up some 600,000 views in his photostream in no time. Things blossomed from there. His recent work includes fashion features for Paula magazine & INFAME, and he just started working with Estudio 185.
