Course Leader, Commercial Photography BA(Hons)

Born in 1984 in Torquay and then raised in Bath,  Anthony went on to study BA Photography at Falmouth University. After spending some years as an assistant in London, assisting the likes of Igor Borisov, Ryan McGinley, Sarah Maingot and Kevin Macintosh, followed by a staff photographer's post at University of Bath, Anthony returned to Falmouth University to study an MA in Photography for which he earned a distinction.

Along with some editorial portrait commissions, Anthony’s personal project research concerns aspects of; memory, the family album and archives. Anthony's MA final major project titled Ipseity was a visual investigation into the archive of his grandmother, and thus Anthony's individual identity. This project consisted of archival material, reworked family album photographs, a sound installation and moving image. 

More recently Anthony has started to develop his writing on photography. He has a Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education and is a lecturer and personal tutor on the BA Commercial Photography programme at the Institute of Photography at Falmouth University.
