Bio Pictures

I have always been fascinated with the art of painting with light - to capture and record a unique slice of space and time that may otherwise be lost forever. A fleeting moment perhaps only witnessed by an individual, yet shared with everyone & imbued with a unique perspective.

I hope you enjoy viewing my images as much as I enjoy making them. The best way to view my portfolio is to follow the link below...

    "Antony is simply a GREAT: a genial eye, the technical skill, so splendid, so picturesque, so captivating and so exquisite captures, the creativity to compose images of superior quality, tackling photography both as an art and as a science. An exemple? His delicious nightshots, marvelous... indeed.
    I'm happy to have been shown the beauty of his captures as only he has captured it like no one else.
    I look foreward in seeing more of this superb images in the future.
    You're a great photographer, my friend!
    Luca"

    "I have few contacts whose photostream i look at every time something new is posted, one exception being Anthony's.

    I have spent hours looking through his photos, my favourites being his Hong Kong and Australia sets. His long exposure work is up there with the best and his shots of Hong Kong, for me, capture the magic of Hong Kong.

    Anthony genuinely appreciates your comments and always responds to any you leave him, be it a "thanks" or some light hearted banter!

    Keep up the good work mate!"

    "It's always great to have fine works as example for what to aspire for. You'll find some of the finest works in VJ Spectra's stream. As someone who's been raised on digital, I'm very tempted to try film just from seeing what this man does with it."
