Hi, my name is Tony and I've been a professional photographer for around forty years. I'm now retired, but you can still prise me out into the commercial world if you can prise your wallet open far enough!
My background is in news photography - throughout the 1980's and 1990's I worked on a range of newspapers both large and small. During that time I photographed plane crashes, car crashes and financial crashes, most of the Royal family and some of the Royle family. I photographed everything from drug-smugglers in Spain to wayward priests in Ireland. I've covered football at Wembley Stadium, rugby at Twickenham, and I've flown over the Atlantic with the US Air Force whilst they re-fueled fighter jets directly beneath me. From 1991 - 1998 I was picture editor on a series of regional newspapers.
Since giving up the staff job twenty odd years ago and "going freelance", I've covered assignments for just about every national newspaper in the UK, and now work throughout the U.K. from my base near Exeter - contact me on 07770 484 888.
As for commercial and PR photography, I ran an extensive list of blue chip clients including PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Coutts Bank, Mitsubishi, Asda, Bloor Homes, Bellway Homes, Mercedes Benz, Drayton Manor, DFS, Screwfix, Punch Taverns, McCarthy and Stone, Hanson, DEFRA, Linden Homes, The Post Office, Taylor Wimpey, Royal Star and Garter, Pets At Home, BASF, Mitchell & Butler and many more.
Nowadays, I photograph mainly throughout the South West, principally Devon, Dorset and Somerset areas being based near Exeter. Mainly my photography is conducted in the Exeter, Sidmouth, Lyme Regis, Dorchester, Torquay, Newton Abbott Teignmouth and surrounding areas, though I happily travel across the UK when tempted...
