While pursuing other careers, Tony was always interested in photography. He started taking pictures when he was 15 using a Kodak Brownie camera that he received by redeeming soup labels. Over the years his interest increased along with his equipment. His wife gave him his first professional camera after the birth of their first daughter. He started his photography career by taking pictures of his two daughters while they played elementary school sports. As his daughters grew, so did his interest in photography. In 1992, he began doing freelance work for a number of local photography studios. He photographed local high school sporting and school events for use in their yearbooks. Over the years he has photographed such events as: the Final Four, professional football, NCAA and MBA basketball, ECHL Premier ice hockey, The Kentucky Derby, Super Bowl XLIV, ATP tennis both men and women, AVP sand volley ball, The Rolex, The Ryder Cup, The World Equestrian Games, The Kentucky Speedway, the Seniors PGA tournament. Tony has also photographed numerous concerts including, Furthur, Muse, Justin Beiber, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift, Michael Buble, Keith Urban, The Eagles, Lyle Lovett, American Idol and others. Tony is also a photographer for the International Press Association, and is a member of the The National Association of Photoshop Professionals.
His photo of the newly remodeled Cathedral Basilica became the front cover of a book on the history of the Diocese of Covington published by Editions du signe and printed in Italy. He was also asked to photograph the Saint Peter and the Vatican: The Legacy of the Popes exhibit at the Cincinnati Museum Center.
Wanting to broaden his interests, he began working with Sophisticated Living Magazine. In working with the magazine, he found himself photographing the finest homes and restaurants in Kentucky and Ohio. In addition, he also traveled to some of the finest resorts in the country bringing the "good life" to the readers through his photographs. That not being enough, his travels took an international turn. The highlight of his career was a whirlwind tour of Israel. According to Tony, one of his most memorable moments was sitting on the mountaintop in the Judean desert overlooking the Dead Sea and sipping tea. It was there that he reflected on his career and felt that it could not get any better than that moment.
This year brought a new high in Tony's career when his photo from the World Equestrian Games jumping event appeared on the front cover of Sophisticated Living Lexington edition.
