about me
A few words

about me

Hi, my name is Tony and I've been a professional photographer for over thirty years. Throughout the 1980's and 1990's I worked on a range of newspapers both large and small as a photojournalist, during which 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 played war games with US Air Force whilst they re-fueled a fighter jet directly beneath me high over the Atlantic ocean. In my latter years on newspapers I was picture editor on a series of Gloucestershire newspapers throughout the Fred West case.
Twenty years ago I set up in business for myself, and now work throughout the U.K. from my base near Exeter. Contact me on 07770 484 888. I have 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. I photograph mainly around the South West, principally Devon, Dorset and Somerset areas being based near Exeter. Whilst a lot of my photography is conducted in the Exeter, Sidmouth, Lyme Regis, Dorchester, Torquay, Newton Abbott Teignmouth and surrounding areas, I'm happy to (and frequently do) travel anywhere within or outside the U.K.
