About the Photographer

Welcome to my website. I am a professional photographer specializing in portrait and fine art photography. This site features my gallery of fine art images. To view my portrait and wedding portfolios, please visit https://anami.zenfolio.com/. I have been taking photographs for over 35 years, traveled extensively throughout the U.S. and the world and have made Vermont my home for the last 30 years.

In the mid 1970’s after returning from a tour of duty in the pacific, my brother Dave gave me my first camera, a Canon AE-1 35mm SLR with a 50mm lens. I expanded my kit with several Nikon SLR’s including the F, FM2n, F3HP, F5 with additional lenses. While working at the Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Hawaii and San Francisco, I experimented with different films and techniques. I found that I preferred the look of Fuji slide film for landscapes/closeups and Fuji high speed print film for astrophotography. Many of the images in my gallery are shot with these films.

In 2006 I bought my first digital camera and was at first, underwhelmed with the quality. But I did appreciate the benefits - instant gratification, easier to obtain the proper exposure, more latitude and less cost in processing, and no more boxes of slides and negatives! As the cameras matured, the quality and resolution finally exceeded slide film and I was on the way to 100% digital. My current digital cameras are a Nikon D4s, Fujifilm X-T2 and X100T.

About the Prints

My prints are continuous-tone true photographic prints produced on Fuji Crystal Archive paper, and are available as prints only in addition to matted or framed.. The triptychs are printed on museum quality canvas and hand stretched onto a custom built, 1.5" thick wooden frame. Triptych images are printed with the highest quality archival inks and then gallery wrapped, continuing around the sides of the frames and ready to hang on your wall. The sides are a solid color chosen to match the image. Triptych canvas panels range in size from 15"x30" per panel to 3'x6' per panel. The finished size of all three panels ranges from 45"x30" to 9'x6'.
