Tony Whitehead has been a keen photographer since childhood, learning skills from his photographer father. Based in the Bay of Plenty, he has experience in a variety of photographic genres but is obsessed with nature photography and specifically birds in flight. A three-time New Zealand Geographic Photographer of the Year finalist, his work has been widely published in books and magazines nationally and internationally and his photos support a number of conservation and educational projects. He enjoys photo editing to optimise an image and is a firm believer in prints being the ultimate display for a photograph.
Tony publishes a weekly educational blog sharing his recent work and photographic resources on everything from stage and portrait photography to wildlife fieldcraft, technical reviews and digital darkroom techniques.
