Anthony Nex Los Angeles Children, People & Lifestyle Photographers

Anthony began mentally creating images at an early age, but it wasn’t until a skateboard accident in high school that he began to commit those images to film. His first submission was on the photo editor's desk at Skateboarder Magazine by the time the stitches and casts came off.

At first, he specialised in still life work but found himself photographing kids more and more: "I have been fortunate to have some pretty diverse clients over the years, and that has allowed me to satisfy my passion for shooting a wide range of subjects, from kids to portraits to products. A strong influence in my work is a sense of wonder, which I keep in shape as the parent of a son who constantly amazes me."

Anthony believes the key to a successful shoot is solid preparation, keeping yourself open to collaboration, and above all, having a sense of humour.

He has lived on the westside of Los Angeles his entire life and he has also travelled the world, spending a considerable amount of time in Africa, Asia, the Americas and the South Pacific.

"I still skate the occasional empty pool - only now, I wear a helmet."
