More about Tony C....

What do you love about your job?

I love connecting with subjects, music, a moment. I love telling stories. I love creating art with a group or individual. I love being a fly-on-the-wall and capturing candid, real moments without the subject knowing or adjusting. I love pooling input from multiple sources and creating a product that makes everyone happy.

What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?

I have done a plethora of types of shoots from bat mitzvahs to a goat sacrifice in Nepal, from portraits of a young lady on her quinceanera to a doom metal band. I make each photo session special in two ways: by being excited myself (loving every image and giving positive reinforcement) and by connecting with the subject (actually listening to their answers and becoming friends.)

Awards, honors, and recognitions received

Associated Collegiate Press Honorable Mention - Environmental Portrait - 2011 Associated Collegiate Press Honorable Mention - Illustration - 2011 International Law Enforcement Torch Run Conference for the Special Olympics - 3rd place in the professional category.

A fun fact about this photographer

I play almost every string instrument (with varying degrees of success.) Every time I travel to a new country, I come home with a sarangi, charango, ukulele or guitar variant.
