About Amy Pezzicara

Amy is a full-time professional photographer based in Tampa, Florida. She spends a lot of time gazing at patterns of light underwater.

When it’s sweltering in Florida she heads north for summer sessions in her NJ hometown and NYC. She specializes in an editorial/commercial mix of spaces, food and people as well as portraits and events.
Her degree in Environmental Science was a little more useful when she was a science teacher and museum designer. Nowadays she makes sure she runs an environmentally responsible business. While she always had a good eye for photography and art, her design aesthetic was sharpened while working with architects and graphic designers to create multi-million dollar interactive museums here and abroad. Put that all together and somehow you end up with a vegetarian foodie (married to a carnivore), mother of three fur children, environmentalist, traveler, kayaker, insatiable learner, lefty who loves to make you smile!
