Tony Cobley Photography

Biography – Tony Cobley. Commercial Photographer in Plymouth, Exeter, Devon & Cornwall, South West England.

South Devon Photographer Plymouth, Tony Cobley:

I am a full time professional commercial photographer based near Plymouth in Devon, UK.  I specialise in corporate photography, advertising and editorial photography and promotional images for business, education, industry and leisure organisations in South West England and beyond.

I often work with marketing,  PR, design and branding agencies locally and nationally capturing images to bring their South West campaigns to life. My work is very much involved in understanding and communicating brands and often includes a lifestyle or people element.

I have been passionate about capturing images of the world around me since getting my first camera at the age of 12. Born in Leicestershire and living and working in South Devon since 1991, I enjoy combining my craft of photography with my enjoyment and respect for the inspirational Westcountry environment and its people.

I formally learnt about the art and craft of photography to first class degree level at Plymouth College of Art in my 30’s and have subsequently qualified to associateship level of the British Institute of Professional Photography. Tony Cobley Photography began trading in April 2005, specialising in corporate and commercial photography throughout all areas of SW England, Devon & Cornwall – anywhere from the Isles of Scilly to Bristol. I am also happy to discuss projects further afield.

I create high quality marketing images for businesses, industry, local authorities, educational institutions, leisure & tourism partnerships and individuals. The photography is tailored to the exact wishes of each client and I am always pleased to discuss creative ideas, availability and budgets. I also enjoy delivering creative photography tuition and doing guest lectures and business talks in Devon & Cornwall.

I specialise in working to marketing briefs in order to convert a client’s brand values into creative promotional images. To see what I get up to, why not check out some of my slideshows such as:


When I’m not working, I like to surf, explore the moors and coast, play snooker, snorkel with seals and you guessed it…  take pictures!
