Hi! I'm Anthony, most call me Tony. I started taking an interest in photography at a very young age, picking up my first SLR camera at the age of 13. Throughout high school I worked at a local studio in Springfield IL learning studio lighting and getting a lot of hands on experience. My excitement for photography grew while working there and eventually I decided I wanted to pursue this as a career.
I enrolled in Brooks Institute of Photography in 2005, focusing my study on commercial photography with an emphasis on fashion . After Brooks I moved back to IL where I continued pursuing fashion photography by attending New York Fashion Week as a press photographer, shooting runways, backstage, and many private events. Traveling to New York was fun, but I realized that I needed to shift my focus to something that was more suiting to my maturing interests.. FOOD! I've always had a passion for the culinary arts. Now I get to shoot my cake and eat it too :)
In 2013 I began working in commercial studios shooting product photography allowing me to refine my skill set and practice shooting more food and lifestyle work. Since moving to San Francisco I've been fortunate to start traveling internationally, shooting cuisine, architecture, people, and beautiful places around the world. The journeys have just begun, and I look forward to sharing all of these experiences with you.
