For over a decade, I have had the opportunity to collaborate with a diverse array of clients as a photojournalist and commercial photographer. Documenting a wide variety of spaces, individuals, and experiences; from comfortable luxury venues with Fairmont Hotels to combat training in austere conditions with the Department of Defense.
My approach to photography has been more of a process of self development rather than just treating it as a career—it’s about cultivating a sense of curiosity of the world, exploring outside my comfort zone, and connecting with people who I admire and find interesting.
What I’m most interested in are opportunities to create work that is worth sharing and to help those who I collaborate with engage with their audience on a deeper, more human level.
Authentic, emotive, and unusual, my images tell stories even when they stand alone.
After a couple decades running my own shop and honing my craft as a commercial and editorial photographer, I’m still enamored with the language and allure of the medium. I’m known for my ability to put people at ease — even or especially when they don’t love having their picture taken.
A successful shoot is about more than great images; it’s about great customer service. It should be a fun, thorough, and satisfying experience for the client. I enjoy the thrill of overseeing production with a crew of thirty, but also never tire of the intimacy of a small shoot. Assignments have taken me across the country from Memphis to Raleigh to Virginia Beach to Los Angeles. I’ve had the privilege of photographing all kinds of professional talent and real people – from the executive team of a global biotech firm, to presidential primary candidates, to unhoused teens aging out of foster care.
In 2019, I relocated from St. Louis to the Pacific Northwest, and now live in weird and magical Portland with my brilliant wife Jackie and our two boys, Jupiter and George.
I’m a lifestyle & advertising photographer / director based in Oakland, California.
Originally from the UK, I spent 12 years in London before relocating to the
West Coast. I shoot and direct stills and video for brand libraries, brand
storytelling and advertising in the USA, Europe and beyond.
Anthony Lindsey is a photographer living in San Francisco and working just about anywhere. Originally from Austin he earned degrees in both Architecture and Photography before choosing “door number two” and settling in San Francisco during the late ‘90s.
By 2006 he had been recognized as one of the “Top 10 Young Photographers in America” by American PHOTO magazine. Now older and (thankfully) wiser he continues to work with clients intent on making pictures that are pure, relatable, and timeless. He currently focuses on images of the built environment and the people who live and work there.
After work you’ll find him looking for the best spot to hunker down with some local food & drink and plan his next trip, preferably to somewhere warm near a large body of water.
Anthony has worked throughout the US and in Europe, China, and West Africa.

I’m a lifestyle and portrait photographer from Italy, currently residing in Los Angeles. As a young boy I had a colorful vintage 1960s map of the United States above my bed. Each main region was represented with a little sketch or figure, very detailed, and I had dreams that one day I was going to be there and discover all those places myself. My passion for visual arts encouraged me to study graphic design and work as web designer in Italy. The opportunity became reality in 2002 when I moved from Italy and my journey started in San Francisco. In few years I ended up in various circumstances in the city of Angeles. The multicultural environment, the vibrant lifestyle and the excitement for embracing this new adventure of life has been my motivation for taking photographs. A passion I cultivated since I was a young teenager and has transformed my life and career. After lot of training and experience, I consider myself very fortunate.

Hey, hello, howdy. I'm a professional editorial and commercial photographer based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Whether I'm on assignment to photograph a celebrity portrait, lead a team on a commercial project or document a slice of life, I strive to make my images bright, colorful and energetic. My work has most recently been recognized in American Photography 32/33/34/37/38 and PDN's Photo Annual. Also, Magnum Photos named me one of their 30 under 30 photographers in 2014.
I see pictures everywhere I go. And that's what makes life so interesting.
After college, I was hired as a staff photography assistant. I learned so much assisting other photographers those first few years, and later as a retail product photographer. I quickly realized I loved the pace of photographing people. I began to show my book and started getting commercial assignments. I specialize in lifestyle and portrait photography as well as directing motion. I make polished, authentic pictures that viewers relate to. I like photographing people and collaborating with my subjects and other creative minds. No matter who it is or what it's for, I find a person's essence through his or her environment, an expression or attitude, or anything else I see. I help set the tone to get the right image. Many variables affect the outcome of a photograph; my job is to help shape them. Generations after me will be able to see exactly what I saw. I like knowing that. I'm still learning new things about my craft every day. And I still lug around the same camera bag I won at a photography workshop 30 years ago. I live in St. Paul, Minnesota with my wife, three children and our dog.
