Hey, I'm Tony, I'm 22 and from the United Kingdom and currently live and work in the United States of America...

Currently I work as a graphic designer, working in print and web doing all sorts of multimedia from flash to postcards from css layouts to magazines.

Photography has been a major hobby of mine which mainly derives from my dad's keen eye for photography. Growing up I shot with his numerous Pentax 35mm slrs and continued to POS with early digital. While at University I upgraded to Canon Powershots and eventually to a G5 also purchasing a Dual 2.0Ghz Powermac G5 and 23" display for my digital canvas. I studied Graphic Design implementing photography being introduced to studio stuff...

I then upgraded to DSLR with a canon digital rebel xt and started collecting lenses as soon as I could afford them.

Photography has become a big part of my job, shooting products we create and portraits for many publications and web sites. I may take a masters in Photography at a later date.

I spend my free time at home with my girlfriend generally being creative, from her writing, us playign music (she is a drummer, I'm a guitarist) and us photographing things and painting! I also love to drive and invested in a nice Ford Mustang Convertible last year

So, Hello and nice to meet you very talented people :)

The University of Huddersfield (its a great little university with a great reputation for Graphic Design with such tutors as James Summerville, founder of Attik (www.attik.com))

Patrick Stewart is the chancellor of the University - great guy :)
