Ansel Adams

American photographer and environmentalist - Ansel Adams has been long overdue to be mentioned on this blog.

He was the first photographer to grip my imagination as a child when waiting in Olivers Dentist, Sunderland, and his photographs still hang on the walls to this day.

Best known for his black & white photography of Yosemite National Park, Adams captures the real beauty and depth of nature.

This is an ode to a legendary photographer who continues to inspire long after his passing.

"A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed." Ansel Adams

Originally from the North East Tony has worked around the country with the likes of Aveda and his future looks promising as he sets out to work with high profile clients in China.

From model to photographer Tony's natural skills behind the lens are breathtaking.

Not only is this collection just for men and women, Versace are making selected pieces for the home. Who wouldn't want a piece of fashion history?

The exclusive collection hit stores from November 17 and is available online (but you have to be quick!)
