Tony Hertz has over 30 years of professional photography experience - 10 years of it as a daily newspaper photographer. He's photographed U.S. Presidents, the Queen of England, Pope Paul, celebrities, musicians, famous sports figures and covered major news and community events.
Working as a photojournalist helped refine his compositional instincts when he turned to focus mainly on landscape and nature subjects for personal and fine art photography work. When not out in the field shooting, he's likely editing images from a recent photo trip or teaching photography and the wet traditional darkroom at Cuesta College Fine Arts Department in San Luis Obispo, California.
Tony has been acknowledged with a large number of awards for his photographs and his images have been published worldwide in major newspapers, magazines, books and postcards including Time Magazine, Los Angeles Times, New York Times Magazine, USA Today, National Geographic WORLD, Sunset Magazine, New York Times, Chicago Tribune, San Francisco Chronicle and the Christian Science Monitor. He's worked with industrial and advertising clients ranging from Chevron to Zenith Watches.
His Black and White Landscape Photography has been published in Outdoor Photographer, SilverShotz, Black and White Magazines.
