He has photographed the greats from all genres, including Reggae Singers, Jazz Musicians, R&B performers, and Hip Hop legends.
While in art school, Donn remembers the Uprising Tour stopped by Pittsburgh to promote the same name's album. He had the privilege of photographing Bob Marley with his band, The Wailers, at a Stanley Theatre venue. On September 23, 1980, this event was the last scheduled public concert performed by the Reggae idol. Triumphant! Donn, full of nostalgia, recollects as if it was just yesterday when Bob Marley took the stage to sing his "Redemption Song."
Backstage with Barrington Levy and Super Cat at Madison Square Garden, Donn captured the night's images to complete Barrington's CD cover.

Donn selects natural settings to provide quality images for his clients. A memorable experience for him was photographing singer Erykah Badu in the desert. Miss Badu is a creative force all by herself. One has to follow her lead to prevail.
Donn is fortunate to photograph prominent Buju Banton and Machel Montano.
Hollis King is a creative director who encouraged him to rise to the next level. He influenced Donn to set no limits to what the mind can imagine. Donn Thompson's talent lies in shooting reality as fantasy. Drac Inc displays a visionary approach to photography.
