After a quick camera lesson from his dad, Tony took his first photos at a New Model Army gig in 1987 and hasn’t stopped since. He has been lucky enough to work closely with the likes of Damon Albarn, The 1975 and Robbie Williams, and has toured alongside Foo Fighters and Red Hot Chili Peppers, capturing intimate moments from the road. This is just a snippet of Tony’s work and the variety of artists that he gets to work with.

While having to manage lifelong medical complications, James has observed and portrayed urban, scenic and social landscapes through art. He uses a variety of different mediums, from oil paints through to photography. Some of his work tries to document and deal with urban decay and social issues, incorporating a free expressive motion through to a modern abstract form.
