Donn Thompson is a master artist via photography. His ambition is a constant part of his art always pushing to get the best out of his subjects.
His professionalism is what he prides himself on. A man who been in the business for 25 years and still on top of his game. How do i know he helped shape the image of a magazine called New Word Magazine, that I own. He is an iconic photographer and a very nice work to work with.

I met Donn many years ago when I first started out as a Makeup Artist. Throughout the years he has given me advise on how to create a professional portfolio. He taught me that everything must come together to make great beauty & fashion photos….The Photography, the Model, the Makeup, the Hair, the Styling etc. Thanks to all of his advice and photography, I have built a professional portfolio. He is an amazing photographer and I would definitely recommend him for your next event.

It was nothing but a positive experience with Donn and I highly recommend you to use him for your photos as well! He put all of my needs first before his own and it was overall an outstanding and fun experience!!!


Donn is a mega talent, bringing a keen eye, sensitivity and great technique to extract the most salient aspects of whatever he is shooting. We really loved working with him as our set photographer for our film ONE HIT WONDER, and we loved the results he gave us from the shoot.

Donn has photographed several covers for The Network Journal with subjects that include the CEOs of leading U.S. corporations, such as Arnold Donald of Carnival Corp., and we have always received great feedback on those covers. Our subjects have expressed appreciation for his talent-- his ability to put them at ease; to catch them in their most candid, real-self moments; and to bring out their natural gorgeous with his finishing. We will work with Donn again and again.

Donn really did wonders for my engagement photos and I thank him tremendously.... Sorry for being late and having you guys waiting there so long, really didn't expect that but I appreciate your patience even tho I know you were cursing me to Africa and back. Just what I saw it amazed me and thank you again for capturing our love.


Absolutely love Donn as a photographer and as a colleague. His work speaks for itself and for me as a makeup artist, he allows my talent and creativity to show through and therefore I believe he makes me better in my field of work and inspires me to do greater! He really has a great talent!

Donn Thompson was the lead photographer for my daughters wedding. He went above and beyond the role of a photographer!

He was professional, creative and most importantly provided us with amazing memories to cherish for a lifetime.

I am so happy I made the choice to use Drac Inc.

Donn Thompson is a very talented photographer with a great personality and I absolutely enjoy working him. He’s clearly passionate about what he does and makes you feel very relaxed while maintaining a firm humorous approach. He took the most beautiful wedding pictures of me that truly captured my face, spirit and personality. The pictures are really stunning and I've received many compliments about them.

I highly recommend Donn for your next event. Whether you’re a model, actor, musician, popular entertainer, business professional, or an individual who wants a lasting memory, Donn captures images that speak to viewers through a visual language we all share.
