Anthony Tyley was born in Worcestershire in 1943. At 20, he pursued his photographic interests by becoming a BBC TV Studio Cameraman, then Film Editor. Anthony progressed to studio director of arts programmes for BBC - 2, with presenters and guests such as Melvyn Bragg, Iris Murdoch, and J. G. Ballard. Anthony worked with special effects television, then in it's infancy, especially blue screen or C.S.O. to combine animated and drawn backgrounds with live performers and dancers. An updated digital version of this, green screen "Chromakey" is now in use in the studio.
From 1988 to 1992, Anthony studied fine art painting for four years full time in Cambridge and London. Among his sitters for portraits later were Professor Sir Frank Kermode, and, for the Army, General Sir Michael Walker.
