 Tony Hart Photo

Tony Hart PhotoTony Hart is based in Surrey and is the 2014 Wings & Wheels Official Event Photographer. Primarily a wedding photographer, Tony also covers a range of other subjects and has a particular interest in aviation imagery thanks to a long-standing passion for all things that fly! After failing to win an RAF scholarship at age 18, due to less than 20/20 vision, he now runs an established photographic business with a growing reputation for producing striking images with a fresh perspective.
