Your Photographer, Anja

Photo by Jo Chattman.

Here's some background about me.

I was raised in Germany and the U.S., and attended the Hallmark Institute of Photography in 1999, winning the Epson/Mamiya Print Design Award upon graduating. I also have a degree from Pratt Institute of Art in Web Design.

I won Best Visual Artist in the Valley Advocate Readers' Poll in 2010.

In pursuit of finding more joy in my life, I realized that pet photography could marry my two passions: animals and photography.

I lives in Turners Falls, MA, with my husband, two dogs, one cat, and an abundance of animal-hair dust bunnies.

My work has been shown at the Rendezvous (Turners Falls, MA),
a group show in Northampton, MA, on the Vermont Center for Photography Instagram page, and currently at Hope & Olive in Greenfield, MA and Hope and Feathers in Amherst, MA.
