Tony’s background as a designer and 2-d artist in the video game industry put him on the cutting edge of photoshop and digital media long before the photo-industry had begun to embrace the new technology.
This expertise allowed him the opportunity to join forces with Liesa Cole in 2000 to expand the scope of services offered by OMNI STUDIO.
The two gelled quickly as “The Dream Team” bringing clients the best of the visual creative and state of the art technical worlds in one shop.
Tony spent 2005 in New York City getting what he calls his “PhD in studio photography”.
During this time in New York, Tony immersed himself in the highest level of the industry as photo assistant, location scout, and production manager. In this capacity, he found himself in demand and working regularly with some of the industry’s most renowned talent. Besides providing him with plenty of material to fill the pages of a celebrity tell-all tabloid, this practical work experience has proved invaluable and revelatory. Tony realized that by partnering with a unique talent like Liesa Cole, the two could provide the same high level of product and service for an exceptional value, right here at OMNI STUDIO in Birmingham, AL.
Currently, Tony wears many hats at OMNI STUDIO as co-owner, studio manager, producer and technical guru.
