Tony Gale is an award winning portrait photographer shooting for a range of advertising, editorial and corporate clients. Tony was raised in Bellingham, Washington (90 miles north of Seattle) and spent most of his time as a child exploring the woods behind his parents house. At 19 after visiting Bruce Lee's grave in Seattle, and taking his first photo with a disposable camera, he bought his first camera. He promptly broke it and bought his first SLR. At 21 he moved to Seattle to pursue photography and in fall of 2000 moved to NYC, the center of the world.
Tony teaches photographic lighting at FIT in NYC, he has also taught at Parsons the New School for Design and
SVA in NYC, judged photo contests, and has traveled the country leading workshops for American Photographic Artists.
Tony is a Manfrotto Ambassador, a Sony Associate Artisan of Imagery, an X-Rite Coloratti and the APA national president.
Tony is also an avid triathlete, and volunteers with the Brooklyn Tri Club on the events committee.
