Thomas Riedelsheimer (b. 1963) is a filmmaker, cameraman and photographer. He first developed a strong interest for photography before he started studying documentary filmmaking in Munich. With his successful film Rivers and Tides about landart artist Andy Goldsworthy, he gained an international reputation and specialized in films about art.

Recently Thomas Riedelsheimer came back to still photography with an exhibition of his photographs in Mexico City.
