Tony Maples


With a keen eye for photography and a love of video, Tony spends his free time hiking while taking scenic photos to keep his camera skills in top form even when completely exhausted. Perfectionist is a phrase usually associated with stubborn individuals who aren’t satisfied unless they take the reigns and put everything into place in their own way, normally that would be a negative but with Tony it’s come in handy more times that I could count.
