About Susan McAnany

My style is diverse. I like vibrant subjects very close up that challenge the viewer and excite their senses. I am also attracted to vintage, rusty, textured subjects that tell a story about their past. My love of black and white stems from the thrill of working in the darkroom during "photo school" days!

Photography allows me to explore all those areas. With the addition of digital, creativity seems endless!

I have been fortunate to work in many areas of photography including portraiture, commercial, event, stock, and the sale of fine art prints. Today, I live in Florida and focused on exhibiting and selling my fine art photographic prints throughout the country. In addition I provide photographic services for clients
