Cambridge based photographer Anthony Tyley, has 25 years former experience in BBC Television as Cameraman,  Film Editor, Studio Director and Arts Programmes Producer/Director.

As Studio Director, the work was essentially portraiture, with interviews and discussions providing invaluable experience. Working with cameras and lights was a constant fascination, and is now being pursued through still photography, often portraits, sometimes with references to Hollywood, both vintage films and the studio "Gallery" photographers.

Partly influenced by 1930's and 40's films, such as Hitchcock's "Rebecca", many of which featured interiors with tall windows and studio sunlight streaming through. This sunlight, though, is real!

Anthony Tyley was born in Worcestershire in 1943. From the word go, his father's "Photograms of the Year" annuals were to be seen every year. Anthony went on to photograph the school play and sports teams in London - with his Physics teacher's Leica! In 1963, 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.
 

Anthony has now returned to photography, bringing together his considerable professional experience in imaging of many different kinds: painting, film, electronic and digital. For the 2010 - 2011 season, Anthony was invited to take over as Leader of the Portrait Group in the prestigous Cambridge Camera Club. Many innovations were introduced, including screenings of photography documentary films, working tethered, with projected images, and demonstrations of state of the art lighting equipment brought in by members.
