There's nothing more inviting or appetizing than an awesome food photo. Food photography is something to savor... continue reading

Trust me, I'm a Macro Photographer

  Hi, I'm Antony and I came to be a photographer via engineering, popular music, plumbing, classical music, building maintenance, separation, divorce, fine art painting, college lecturing and caring for an elderly relative.
