2010 Exhibit Schedule
Anthony has a number of exhibits and shows this year throughout the Midwest. Many of Anthony's collectors have already begun to order prints in order to reserve lower edition numbers and avoid potential price increases as the editions sell. Be sure to contact the studio if you would like to reserve low edition numbers of your favorite images. As our way of saying thank you for all the preshow support, we will donate $25.00 to Big Brothers Big Sisters of America in your name for every print you order between now and Anthony's first show on June 12th (Click Here for Details).

The Great Bear Rainforest
Anthony has returned from his adventure searching for the very rare white Spirit Bears in the Great Bear Rainforest along the Pacific Coast of British Columbia. This was one the greatest Nature experiences of Anthony's career! The impact all the different species of bears left on him has changed the way he perceives wildlife and rekindled that fire within him to search out that special moment in the wild that can make anyone stop and take their breathe away. You can read more about this remarkable trip on Anthony's blog. He will be releasing a large volume of new images from this magical region over the next several weeks, so stay tuned!
July 22, 2009
It has been a very busy spring and summer for Anthony. He returned from his trip to the magical Slot Canyons (new exhibit up soon) at the end of May and has been busy working through all his images from the trip. Anthony is also very pleased to announce that his work will now be represented by Dan Krasemann of DRK Photo. Mr. Krasemann has represented some of the best images from a select group of the world's finest Nature Photographers for the last 30 years. Anthony is both excited and honored for this new partnership with DRK Photo. They will now handle most of the worldwide marketing for the publishing and stock licensing of all Anthony's work. This will free up more of Anthony's time to devote to being in the field creating new images and artwork for his collectors, which is his true passion. The last couple of months have been consumed with this new addition to Anthony's photography, as well as several other exciting new facets yet to be announced. Things are moving quickly for him, so stay tuned for several other announcements in the near future! As always, Anthony thanks everyone for their continued support.
