Tony Northrup

I'm an author and photographer. As a photographer, I focus on nature, travel, creative portraiture, and microstock. My photos have been featured on national magazine covers (Yoga magazine and Publisher's Weekly), book covers, CD covers, The Tonight Show, TV gameshows, textbooks, children's books, and much more. I've even shot erectile dysfunction ads featuring myself as the model.

As an author, I've published about thirty technology books (mostly for Microsoft Press and O'Reilly), and my first photography book, "Tony Northrup's DSLR Book: How to Create Stunning Digital Photography," is one of Amazon's top 10 photography books. Link :

Thanks to my nerd powers and a film scanner, I was the first person to setup a large, organized wildlife photo library on the Internet ( It now has photos of about 1,000 species (all taken by yours truly) and has had more than 25 million visitors.

I'm extremely lucky to have my own live-in model: that gorgeous brunette you'll see sprinkled throughout my photos. I also have a 7 year-old daughter and two dogs (who also model regularly).
