Tom Bunting is a writer, photographer and producer currently studying Journalism and Political Communications at Emerson College in Boston, Massachusetts. Tom is interested in reporting on politics, media, and social movements. He also likes writing about less important things like movies and video games and technology.
Tom was the News Director for Emerson Independent Video for two semesters in 2016-2017, vastly expanding the coverage direction and scope of the nation’s largest college news organization. Under Tom’s watch, EIV News vastly expanded their field reporting team, turned their website into Emerson’s premiere student news website, and produced a four hour multi-state live election special for the 2016 Presidential Election. It was neat.
Currently, Tom writes and co-hosts a podcast about progressive politics for the Unpresidented media enterprise, and does video and article work for a variety of places.
Tom studied photography and filmmaking at Ruth Asawa School of the Arts in San Francisco. His work has been featured on the cover of Umlaut literary journal and he’s done work with organizations like NVXL, Option Explore, and SOTA World Music.
He is available to freelance for all of these services. Say hi!
