Anthony Tyley was born in Worcestershire in 1943. At 20, he pursued his photographic interests by becoming a BBC TV Studio Cameraman, then Film Editor. Anthony progressed to studio director of arts programmes for BBC - 2, with presenters and guests such as Melvyn Bragg, Iris Murdoch, and J. G. Ballard.
Now, Anthony is undertaking formal studio portrait photography, formal and informal portraits on location, and candid photographs of children. Anthony has considerable experience working with distinguished guests in his television work, and currently with both adults and children as art tutor. This makes for a warm, sensitive approach to all his current work.
