Art is my vocation and has been the thread throughout my varied and creative career to-date.
I secured a BA Honours at the University of Ulster. In the 90s, I co-founded a club-night that leveraged ground-breaking AV technology in which visuals were created not just to complement sound, but also to manipulate mood.
Then I worked in the film and advertising sector, at best-in-class agencies like M&C Saatchi, Ogilvy and Publicis Groupe UK.
In between projects, my entrepreneurial adventures have continued in the form of a bar-restaurant, pure-play fashion e-commerce and Virtual Reality.
Photography has always been a core element of my career, but never the entire focus. Although that changed because of COVID-19 when I lost my full-time job at the start of lockdown.
I created a working studio at home and began to collaborate photographically for the first time with my wife who is a working model. And the rest, as they say, is history!
As a direct response to COVID-19, Tony and Louise created a working studio at home and began to collaborate photographically for the first time. And the rest, as they say, is history!
Creativity has been a constant in my life. At school, I played piano and percussion orchestrally. And I had a strong aptitude for writing and language at school.
I studied French at the University of Glasgow and spent a compulsory year living in Paris, where I was model scouted and began a love affair with the lens.
I went on to pursue a career in business, delivering marketing communications for corporates. And for the next two decades,
I worked for the world’s top banks, law and accountancy firms.
