Asia’s Next Top Model Judge and Resident Photographer
A master of photography, bringing the very nature of imagination and artistic expression to life.
Todd Anthony Tyler is regarded by fashion insiders as a pre-eminent photographer and art director. For over a decade, Tyler has operated a successful studio in Shanghai, China, becoming one of the most sought-after contemporary photographers in Asia as well as worldwide. His work regularly graces the pages of elite fashion magazines including Vogue China, Vogue Italia, Elle China, Harper’s Bazaar China, Prestige Indonesia, L’Officiel and GQ. Celebrated for shooting vivid images with raw energy and uncompromising character, Tyler has created captivating advertising campaigns for Uma Wang, Ritz-Carlton Hotels, L’Oreal Paris, Adidas and Ports 1961 menswear.
Breaking into the fashion industry as a model, Tyler was once highly sought-after by the blue chip brands of menswear. After modeling full time from Japan to Milan, Tyler began to pursue his lifelong love affair with photography, this time from a different angle. With 20+ years of combined experience on both sides of the camera, the Canadian-born photographer uses the lens to push the boundaries of style and creative exploration. His unique point of view on producing artistic imagery is expressed candidly each month in a column he writes for Asian Photography, India and Asia’s premier professional photography magazine.
Known for transforming models into icons, Tyler has captured the rising star of Asia’s freshest faces including Liu Wen, Fei Fei Sun, Xiao Wang and Kiki Kang. This Fall, Tyler will appear on Tyra Banks’ highly anticipated premier cycle of ‘Asia’s Next Top Model‘ (AsiasNTM) as resident photographer and judge. Expect to see Tyler masterfully create an endless array of iconic images on AsiasNTM, while providing personal and candid insights on what it takes to be a model on the forefront of fashion.
When Tyler is not snapping away, he strives to maintain a healthy work-life balance by doing yoga, weight training and running daily. He is co-owner of a yoga inspired lifestyle-clothing company called Aumnie.
