After 20 years as a professional jazz artist, Tony changed careers and directed his creative juices towards nature photography. The improvisational, spontaneous, and abstract nature of jazz are also integral elements of nature photography.
Tony's work is published on calendars, post cards, posters, annual reports, greeting cards, catalogs, and electronic mediums. His fine art prints are exhibited in private and corporate collections throughout the United States, and he is represented by The Getty Picture Agency. His images are also used by Nikon, NikSoftware, Singh Ray, Microtek, Alien Skin, LucisPro and others for national ad campaigns.
Tony conducts Visual Artistry photography location workshops, and speaks to photography organizations and PPA schools throughout the continental United States and Canada. Tony's articles and images are featured in Shutterbug and Rangefinder magazines, and is a contributor to Nikonnet.com. He is a staff writer for Nikon World magazine.
He has authored four books on the art of photography: Fine Art Nature Photography ('02), Fine Art Flower Photography ('05), Fine Art Nature Photography: Water, Ice, Fog ('07), and Fine Art Digital Nature ('09).
Tony maintains an active speaking schedule, addressing professional photography organizations, universities, seminars, and teaching workshops, and is an instructor on betterphoto.com.
