As with most photographers, Tony has very few pictures of himself, and none from the expedition. The image to the right was taken on the barrier reef with his two boys.
Tony has lived in Belize for ten years, and first came to Belize in 1979 with the Smithsonian Institution. He was trained as a marine biologist and is still involved in helping to manage and conserve Belize's vast marine resources.
Having photographed most of his life, Tony turned professional 5 years ago and established Tony Rath Photography, a stock photography business specializing in wildlife and travel images from Belize and the region.
One of the main purposes of this expedition was to collect images of the upper Sibun watershed to use in attempts to help protect the Sibun River's environment.
Tony is also webmaster for the Belize by Naturalight Website, a website specializing in all things dealing with Belize.
