Me taking a photo of a Common Blue Butterfly

About me


I'm Tony North, a photographer based in Manchester, England.  My main passion is macro photography. I have always loved nature, but there's something about spending a few hours in a wildflower meadow capturing images of butterflies and dragonflies that really excites me.


I love revealing the amazing beauty of the world of miniature beasts, and sharing that with others. I also enjoy competing, whether in BPE Salons or in major competitions such as the International Garden Photographer of the Year, for which one of my shots got a highly commended in 2019, or Amateur Photographer of the Year, for which another image got 3rd place.

Talks and Workshops

I am available to give online talks on my macro work as well as on the eye and the evolution of seeing. If and when restrictions are lifted, I plan to give workshops in the field in the Manchester area. Please follow the links for details.

I hope you enjoy perusing my images. As well as macro I enjoy landscapes,  travel and other animals.
