Photography as a creative and expressive medium
Tony has a strong creative thread of interest for the arts generally, including painting, drawing and various genres of music. Photography has been his creative and expressive medium for many years, from the old film days through to the digital age. Originally coming from an electrical engineering background, his bias for technology was the perfect platform for taking his photography into a full time living. He is self taught and continually takes inspiration from many past masters in both fine art photography and the art world in general.

Photographic tutoring and tuition
He has run his own business since 1995 and has hosted photographic workshops, tours and courses for the last ten years, welcoming participants from all around the world He is an experienced and enthusiastic tutor with a big heart to help others learn and he enjoys watching budding photographers improve their skills, first honing their cameras skills and then helping them in their quest to fulfil their creative potential. The workshops are for all levels and abilities and include one-to-one tuition days, as well as one, two and three day group workshops in Dorset, Wiltshire and the south west of England. The workshops can be very rewarding and are designed to help with camera skills, camera craft in general and more importantly, creative technique! For more details please see workshops and courses.

Fujifilm X Shooter
Over the last 3 years his seamless and total migration from full frame Canon DSLR's to the more compact and excellent Fuji X series mirrorless cameras has without doubt been a contributing factor to enjoying his photography more. The lightweight and smaller system is perfect for every area of his photography and especially the street and documentary genres. Tony: "I am simply bowled over by the quality and tactile feel of the Fuji system. The build quality of the lenses is excellent and the cameras are just superb to use, whatever you are shooting."
