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. The transition was seamless and Tony became a full time professional after only 5 years of study and building stock.
Today, Tony’s work is published on greeting cards, calendars, post cards, posters, annual reports, catalogs, and electronic mediums. He is represented by Pictor, Woodfall Wild Images, Digital Vision, and Orion stock agencies. In 1994, Tony started his Art of Nature Photography workshop company, which conducts workshops in the eastern United States. His work is featured in Rangefinder magazine and Shutterbug magazine on an ongoing basis and as contributor to Nikonnet.com.
Tony has become fluent in digital imaging, including designing and building

Tony maintains an active speaking schedule on the subjects of nature photography and marketing. He is a member of Fuji’s "Talent Team 2000" and the Baltimore chapter of ASMP.
