Tony Hardley on Photography

Being able to take on new challenges that are set by each client and utilising every creative juice in my body to deliver what is required – that is something that gives me a sense of accomplishment that can’t be replicated. In my mind, doing a job you enjoy and are passionate about makes all the difference. It not only reflects in the quality of the work, in whom we are as individuals, and it helps make up the very essence of how we feel about ourselves. What I love best about my job is seeing the look on a client’s face when they see their ideas become a photographic reality.
