Hi, I'm Tony

Tony Timmington

Hi,
I’m Tony. I’ve been a photographer for quite some time. Starting out working in the photographic department, (Photographic Arts Ltd), of an advertising agency, Longley & Hoffman. Following that I almost accidentally got a job working on P&O ships, circumnavigating the world twice in exactly one year and one day. Just like to Owl & the Pussycat. Following that I initially worked in the darkroom of Features International in Fleet Street, then moved on to be one of their photographers. After that I leaped into the scary world of the freelance…which I’ve been ever since.

My Bio

I did a course at Birmingham School of Photography. At Features International and Syndicated Features I photographed almost everything you could think of. These two companies serviced newspapers all over the world. It was during this period that I did some film and actor stills and portraits . On the train one day I met the Art Director of Ideal Home magazine. He offered to give me a trial shoot. It was this experience that changed the course of my life away from the film world. I went on to work for most the interior magazines. To cut a long story short. I worked for BBC publications, Wrote and illustrated features for Camera User magazine, worked for Radio Times, TV Times, Auto Express magazine etc. I recently did some unit stills for director Yuri Fernandes. I found this exciting and fun and realised this is what I was meant to do.

Highlights from Tony

Got to photograph Jenny Agutter and Ben Kingsley. Photographed Jenny several times since. Lovely to work with. My first TV job was almost a disaster. A chat show with Charles Aznavour. who sang his big hit ‘She’. During a quiet part. I decided to take a shot. The studio was quiet, my camera shutter was so loud! The crew looked across at me aghast.. As it happens, not so bad as it was only a rehearsal.
Mostly, every actor, singer, celeb have all been charming. Shot Sir Christopher Lee at Holborn Studios for TV Times. I remember he mentioned the suit he was wearing was 30 years old. Shot Tom Conti in his garden on the dullest day. Medium format film, lens wide open. Only his left eye was in focus. Hugh Laurie cycled down to Tottenham Court Road from Hampstead specially. Photographed James Cosmo at home for the BBC.
