Tony Floyd is a New York based photographer, artist, and Director. As a teenager, Tony was offered a modeling contract which introduced him to the world of travel and fashion. He soon discovered that he was drawn to the other side of the camera and picked up his first Rolleiflex.
A chance encounter at the age of 17 with iconic photographer Bruce Weber led to a job where he learned and developed as an artist in his own right. After several years, Tony accepted the position of first assistant with the legendary Brigitte Lacombe, where he once again lived out of his suitcase while learning the art of portraiture.
In 2004, Tony left the Lacombe studio to pursue his own work. He began shooting for W Magazine and the Wall Street Journal and New York Times as well as producing personal fine arts projects. He soon followed with a solo show of his documentary "Auburndale Speedway" at The National Arts Club in New York City.
Studio Ava was formed in 2007 by Tony and Kim as a partnership to supply the growing demand for video along with their Photography. Motion has been a natural evolution and as Studio Ava they are able to utilize the years of experience in fashion to direct, shoot, and edit videos for some of the most prestigious brands in the world including Tommy Hilfiger, DKNY, D&G Fragrance, Pulsar, Clinique and Estee Lauder.
