When a skateboard accident in high school stopped him from doing what he loved for a few months, Anthony borrowed a camera and quickly found his passion. His first submission was on the photo editor's desk at Skateboarder Magazine by the time the stitches and casts came off.
At first, he specialized in still life work, but found himself photographing kids more and more. When Covid-19 shut down the kids work he jumped back into cosmetics, still life and liquids, and has reconnected with his love of photographing inanimate objects.
He's been fortunate to have some pretty diverse clients over the years, and that has allowed him to satisfy his passion for shooting a wide range of subjects, from kids and portraits to cosmetics, still life, liquids and food. A strong influence in his work is a sense of wonder, formed by being the parent of a son who constantly amazes him.
Anthony believes the key to a successful shoot is solid preparation, keeping yourself open to collaboration, and above all, having a sense of humor.
He's lived on the Westside of Los Angeles his entire life, but has spent a considerable amount of time in Africa, Asia, the Americas, and the South Pacific. An avid scuba diver, he's as equally comfortable shooting underwater as on land.
Since 1987 he's worked out of a studio in a converted bakery building on the edge of Culver City and LA. It's one of the few remaining studios left in the area, and it's a great location for studio work and a good base for location. As photography evolves and motion increasingly takes a bigger role in his work the studio is able to provide the ideal facility for whatever project comes up.
