In a photographic portrait, the impact of the image relies on the subject's expression, pose or lack thereof. A viewer is challenged to read into the subject with visual cues created by the photographer. Tony strives to find the camera angle and pose which challenges the viewer and forms a story. He carefully crafts his images with a blend of technical expertise and strong narrative. Tony grew up in San Francisco and was trained at the world renowned Brooks Institute. Currently, Tony is based in San Francisco and is actively working all over California creating captivating portraits that chronicle people's lives.
"Photography is a means of expression, a means of freeing oneself. Photography should not be used to assert ones own creativity. Photography is a way of life. It frees me from the treadmill of life; so I can escape to another world, and shout that I am alive. To a world where my images are seen and ultimately, a story is told."
