My name is Tony and I was born and raised in Sonoma, CA. My family has been in Sonoma now for five generations, on both sides. This is something I brag about.
I have always enjoyed taking photos. Though it has never been my career, my passion for photography is very strong. I seem to always have a reason to carry a camera, multiple lenses, filters, flashes, tripod, and many accessories with me when I leave my house.
Photography has been a part of my life for a very long time. My father (the one in middle below) has spent the better part of his life teaching high school and college students how to handle a camera and develop the film. My two brothers and I learned aperture priority and shutter speeds at an early age.
The most important thing to me is my family. I love being a father as much as love being a husband. I enjoy after a hard day of work coming home to my wife and kids excited to see me.
