Biographical Note

She became the Washington Post's first female photojournalist in 1966, covering the Washington, D.C. area and, for three years, the White House. Since 1967, Thomas and her husband David have lived in Virginia and been active in the local fox-hunting community, the subject of much of her freelance work. In 1987 Thomas was the White House News Photographers Association's Still Photographer of the Year. She went on leave from the Washington Post in 1995 and enrolled in the photojournalism doctoral program at the University of Texas at Austin. She received her degree in 2007.
