Thom has filmed four Everest documentaries spanning two decades. He was high altitude cameraman during the expedition that discovered the body of lost British mountaineer George Leigh Mallory at nearly 27,000 feet in 1999, 75 years after his disappearance (PBS/BBC). Thom returned to Tibet to film the search for Mallory’s partner, Sandy Irvine, in 2019 with National Geographic and Sony. He also filmed Accidental Climber in 2014, which was released to critical acclaim in 2018. In 2016, during the filming of Sharing Everest, Thom reached the summit on May 22nd under a brilliant full moon. Sharing Everest is currently in production.
