Arguably the most noteworthy street style photographer around, Tommy Ton said his goodbyes today to Style.com. Ton captured virtually every fashion week for the site over the past six years — transforming the likes of Nick Wooster into a god-like style icon in the process — but his tenure has come to an end with Style.com’s acquisition by Condè Nast and the media company’s plan to transform the site into an e-commerce hub. Ton’s goodbyes appear below while his shots from the inaugural New York Fashion Week: Men’s can be seen over at Style.com.

So this is my Style.com sign off. I want to thank everyone over the last six years for their incredible outpour of support. I grew up glued to my computer screen living vicariously through the world of Style.com and never in a million years did I expect to become a contributor to the most relevant and influential fashion publication. It’s sad to see it go but fashion is all about change and moving forward. I want to thank Dirk Standen, Nicole Phelps and Tim Blanks for mentoring me and giving me this platform. I, still to this day, pinch myself that I had this incredible opportunity and will be forever grateful to the Style.com team for allowing me to be a part of history. Last week was my last submission in the field and I was fortunate to have my friend, Nick Wooster, be the last image I took for Style.com.
Many, many thanks again,
Tommy
