Incorporating photography. With the growing need for image placement and brand identity for rising businesses due to the speed of the expanding social media market, Tilghman took the opportunity to establish Anthony Tighlman Enterprises. Since his inclusion of such a major visual element, the development of partnerships and gained sponsorships have set the young entrepreneur on a path to working with entities such as TV-One and Prince George’s Chamber of Commerce (Maryland) and photographing highly-profiled figures such as Bob Johnson, Michael Jordan and Chaka Khan. His role as a featured photographer for NY Fashion Week, the Congressional Black Caucus, Presidents Dinner, WEEN (Women in Entertainment Empowerment Network) and the 2009 Inauguration placed Tilghman in the arena, being one of the only requested photographers without being affiliated with a publication. These motions have pushed his business into a realm of precision, displaying techniques of keeping clients satisfied with top-notch and synchronized marketing decor. Currently, Tilghman maintains high standards with clientele, serving as Director of Marketing for Glynn Jackson, founder of the Golden Scissor Awards and L.A. Pink; conducting photography for the popular DC attraction, the Cherry Blossom Festival; Lefty’s Bridal Inc and more. With client features in publications such as Essence Magazine, The Washington Post and The Philadelphia Examiner, and television visibility on Fox 5 and TV-One, there is no denying that Anthony Tilghman Enterprises is focused on getting the shot as he is consistently recommended for major corporate functions and events, notably the 2011 83rd Annual Academy Awards ceremony and the upcoming Tony Awards.
With a determined mindset and an invaluable display of generosity to those who want to learn, Tilghman is a consistent example of intelligence and humbleness as he continues to market himself through charity and business. As a self-starting principle, the photographer gives away an annual $1000 scholarship to a student passionate about pursuing the arts. On top of that, he is setting marketing trends with some of the hottest brands in the beauty and fashion industry such as Pantene, Redken and Canon and making sure that his images are seen on some of the nation's most visited websites like THEYBF.com, PRCouture.com and BallerAlert.com and more. Tilghman is announced as the official conference photographer for the 2011 International Women's Media Foundation Conference. He also maintains photography for The Georgetowner as well as WHW Rocks & Web (“What’s Hot Washington”), a Washington D.C area weekly independent music forum. With the flash of ingenuity and the ability to see through lenses of persistence, Anthony Tilghman stands truly as a brand that has it all in perspective.
