Tony Steers Photography


Born and brought up in Kent, I’ve lived in Herne Bay, on the North Kent coast for most of my life.

Aside from the early use of simple 110 cartridge cameras, my interest in photography didn’t surface until I bought my first SLR, a Praktica BCA, around the age of 20. Quickly finding the limitations of the aperture priority only Praktica, I soon joined the Nikon stable with the F301.

My kitbag now contains a variety of marques and formats, from a home-made pinhole to a Graflex Crown Graphic 5x4 to a Fujifilm X-pro2. Being on a limited budget, pretty much all my kit is second hand.

Kitlist includes:

35mm - Nikon F4, Olympus OM4, Olympus XA

120 - Mamiya C330f, Agfa Isolette 2

5x4 - Graflex Crown Graphic

Digital - Fujifilm X-pro2, Nikon P7000

I try not to pigeon-hole myself into a particular genre or style, preferring to shoot whatever catches my eye, although I confess to needing to work on my “people photography”.

I had the pleasure, a few years ago, of being asked to shoot all the images for my employers’ corporate calendar, some of which are on this site, which led to the pinacle of my photographic endeavours thus far; a published article in Amateur Photographer magazine (13th March 2004). I’ve been fortunate enough to make a few sales.
