Tony Cobley Photography

Biography – Tony Cobley. Commercial Photographer, 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 can also manage projects which include drone, video and other specialist imaging via a network of other professionals.

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 involves understanding and communicating brands and marketing messages which often include 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 south west environment and its people.

I qualified with a first class BA (Hons) degree at Plymouth College of Art in my 30’s and have subsequently achieved 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 quote for projects further afield.

I create high quality marketing images and the photography is tailored to the exact wishes of each client. I am always pleased to discuss (in person or via Zoom) creative ideas, availability and budgets. I also enjoy delivering creative photography tuition and doing guest lectures and business talks in Devon & Cornwall.

My mission is to produce great photographs to your brief and to work professionally, with sensitivity, respect and good ethics. 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!
