Anthony’s passion for Natural History led him to read Zoology at Cambridge University, where he specialised in the study evolution and behaviour, including the work of his great hero, Charles Darwin. Alongside his scientific studies he established a career an artist, having begun exhibiting and selling his bronze wildlife sculptures in London at the age of 18. After graduating in 2005 he set up his own sculpting studio and has since been working on major commissions including creating statues for Cambridge University and the Natural History Museum of London as well as a new two-pound coin for the United Kingdom; www.anthonysmithart.co.uk. He has been the Artist in Residence in both the Falkland Islands and South Georgia, and has sailed around the world working as a television presenter for a documentary series about the Voyage of HMS Beagle.
Anthony’s award-winning photographic work has appeared in many publications including those of National Geographic and BBC Wildlife. His first book was published in 2015; a photographic voyage around the world aboard the Dutch tall ship, Stad Amsterdam. www.anthonysmithphotography.com
