After successful careers as a jazz musician and educator, and professional magician, Tony settled on photography as his chosen means for personal expression. Beginning as a film photographer, he reluctantly moved to the digital age. Probably one of the last of his peers to “go digital,” Tony has become facile in imaging software, specializing in plugins. As a charter Nik Team member, Tony teaches and lectures throughout the United States and Canada on the creative use of plugins.
Tony and Susan Milestone conduct Visual Artistry photography location workshops in the United States, Canada and Iceland. Tony maintains an active speaking schedule to photography organizations, industry trade shows and PPA schools across the continental United States and Canada. His articles and images are featured in Shutterbug and Rangefinder magazines, and he is a contributor to Nikonusa.com. He is also a staff writer for Nikon World magazine and staff instructor on betterphoto.com.
Tony’s photography is published worldwide in every medium and is represented by Getty Images. His iPhone photography is represented by Aurora Photos. Tony’s images are also used by Nikon, NikSoftware, Singh Ray, Alien Skin, Lensbaby and others for national ad campaigns. An interview with Tony on macro photography was published in The New York Times.
Tony has authored five books on the art of photography: Fine Art Nature Photography (’02), Fine Art Flower Photography (’05) Fine Art Nature Photography: Water, Ice, Fog (’07), Fine Art Digital Photography (’09) and HDR Photography (2011). He and Masterphoto Workshops have co-produced four photography DVDs: Visual Artistry, HDR Made Easy, Visual Literacy and Flower Photography Artistry, as well as an iPhone instructional video series.
