I am Tony Coleby and I am a freelance commercial photographer based in Cambridgeshire and working in the East of England and the London area. I love what I do and I believe that shows in my work. I offer a friendly and professional approach and have years of experience working with a range of customers from nervous, first time portrait subjects to international organisations needing top quality commercial work.
I previously ran Perfect Yellow Creative Photography with my wife Nicole since 2009 and now I work alone under my own name. I studied at University of Brighton, graduating in 2000 with a BA (hons.) in Information and Media Studies where I specialised in photography and journalism.
I have been widely published both in print and online including covers and features in Disorder Magazine, Cambs Times, Fenland Citizen, the BBC News website, Art and Soul, Dominion (part of Terrorizer magazine) and various music sites. I have art credits for CDs, music downloads and novels for which my distinctinve style is often sought out.
I have shot many, many live music and arts events including festivals such as Rock Ness, Stag and Dagger, Strawberry Fair and associated Cambridge Band Competition, Fordhamfest, Pink Festival (with dedicated gallery on BBC Cambridgeshire). Artists I have had the pleasure of snapping live include Adam Ant, Kasabian, Human League, Orb, Lone, Orange Goblin, Viking Skull, Dreadzone, ex-Simple Minds, March Violets, Lahannya. As well as Cambridgeshire legends such as, Unit Nine, Sachanovak, The Loop and virtually everyone who has ever strummed a guitar within the boundaries of Cambridge.
I work with some of the leading shop refit firms in the UK such as Delta Bravo Ltd. (the gallery there is all my work) and am often called upon to document refits at restaurant chains such as Domino's Pizza and Poncho 8 as well as independent shops throughout the country and also retail/ residential projects especially in London. I also produce images capturing the style and unique foods of restuarants already up and running and have an eye for portraying the vibrancy and life of a business.
I was selected by Disorder magazine to produce a set of images for an exhibition entitled "We Could be Heroes" in which my team and I made over ordinary people to be snapped as their icons during which we had the pleasure of photographing imitators of the likes of John Lennon, Yoko Ono, Lemmy, Siouxsie Sioux, Johnny Rotten, Kurt Cobain, Sir Douglas Bader, Tankgirl and The Crow!
I have helped authors producing their first novels with original art work and design such as Lucy Brazier's now quite popular Secret Diary of PorterGirl and Debz Lowry's Dark Seeds 3AM. Recently I was commisioned to produce original art work for Mark Shepherd's debut album Bad Man which involved making a credit card sized USB stick for promotional distribution.
I will happily supply a custom gallery or sample set of photos for you as there are simply too many to list here, feel free to ask!
I am Google Local Guide and regularly add my photos and reviews to Google Maps. The reviews are my own opinions but if you would like a top quality photo of your business visible on Google then I can help.
The services I offer include portrait photography in March, pet photography in Cambridgeshire, commercial photographer in Cambridge, beautiful art prints of England and the UK, corporate photography UK, music promotional images in East Anglia, cover art, book cover design, music CD design, prints to buy and much more.
I was the first photographer in Europe (and one of the first in the world) to officially accept Bitcoin as a payment method and continue to do so or indeed any other major cryptocurrency. For posterity's sake here are my archived, annotated Bitcoin price charts.
