Featured Photographer | Tony Scott
Tony has had a love of the ocean since his childhood, surfing at Saltburn by the Sea on the Yorkshire Coast of England and long summer holidays in Treyarnon Bay, a Cornish coastal village near Padstow.
He was introduced to photography when at 16, was fortunate enough to work with renowned lifestyle photographer Graham Oliver (Solstock) based in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England.
Moving to Australia in the early 1980s and living at Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast, he was able to combine his passion for the ocean and photography. This has enabled him to travel and photograph all types of marine life: great white sharks and sea lions in South Australia, manta rays, turtles, dolphins and whales in Australia and Indonesia as well as the rare Hector dolphins in New Zealand.
Travelling to Raja Ampat in January 2020 was a highlight for him, combining diving and photography. He says the ocean in that part of the world is truly incredible, the biodiversity of fish and coral is phenomenal.
