Christy Campbell, founder of Christy Anna Photography, is an expert in fashion, weddings, and portrait photography. Campbell’s aesthetic showcases moody tones and retro vibes. In 2013 she graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio, and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a concentration in photography however, her passion started long before.

Campbell received her first camera when she was only 12 years old. A gift from her parents, she quickly saw her life behind the lens and has been creating memories ever since. She also holds a passion for filmmaking and so she pulls inspiration from artists like Cindy Sherman, Marina Abramović, and Danielle Levitt. Empowering women is equally important to Campbell, so you will see themes in her work that advocate for inclusivity and diversity. “Film has always been an inspiration to me, so even when I’m shooting digital work I like to mimic film styles. I also love hearing my clients say things like you made me feel so confident or I had the best time expressing myself” stated Campbell.

After taking a chance and a leap of faith, Campbell has turned her passion into a full-time career. In the past two years, even through the pandemic, her business has grown and her client list continues to expand. When asked, about the past year and continued goals, Campbell stated,

“One of the things COVID gave us was a time of deep reflection. It slowed me down a bit but I’ve had the pleasure of shooting clients who want to celebrate themselves. I also fear that I won’t be able to see and photograph every country on my bucket list. There are so many places and people to see and if could. If I had the opportunity, I’d love to photograph Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Her music and strong sense of self has always inspired me, she also seems like she’d bring an amazing energy to a photo shoot.”

Amy Janine a Texan at heart, was born and raised in El Paso, Texas. With this background and a passion for photography since high school,  she later in life pursued a four-year college degree in fashion design. But when asked about what truly sparked her desire for photography, she pinpoints the moments after moving to Hawaii in 2015. Being from a small town, where people believe there is no way out, she wanted to do what made her happy in life and capture special moments while being on Oahu. She spoke about not having a car and utilizing public transportation where she first realized the gorgeous atmosphere. It was then, that she quickly bought a camera and began landscaping photography but her fashion background never seemed to disappear. Today, her style is a hybrid of fashion editorial and landscaping, producing vivid, eye-catching images, reminiscent of a high fashion spread for Vogue mixed with gorgeous earthly shots of National Geographic.

Her eye for capturing her clients in the world’s natural elements is a great reflection of her background photographing in Hawaii but many of her fans actually call on her for her editorial aesthetic, a direction she actually never purposely pursued but always seems to create. “I’ve been told that a lot (that I have editorial style) but it makes sense. I have always loved fashion photography and now I am incorporating both things that I love.”

Open about her personal emotional turmoil, Janine shares having lost many loved ones in her past. Today, she hosts a deep appreciation for life and strives to live life with no regrets. This drive keeps her in motion with projects and is used during the creation of her images through her lens.

“I do not like living life in regret because I have already experienced that. When an opportunity approaches that scares me or makes me nervous, it gives me more of a reason to try it”, stated Janine. Living without repentance, and through her work, she hopes to one day photograph one of her idols, Rihanna. “I think she is one of the most influential fashion icons, moguls, and musicians of her time. I think that is so powerful, especially being that she is a woman of color.”

Klare Perez is a freelance photographer in San Antonio, Texas who specializes in artistic portraits and urban photography. She has always had a love for art and creating. At the age of 15 years old, during the rise in social media, Perez began realizing her potential and started unlocking her passion for photography. In the beginning, Perez took photos at music concerts, and of close family and friends.

While working a fulltime job and growing her passion behind the scenes, it wasn’t until the year 2020, when she decided to take a leap of faith to leave her long-time job to pursue photography more aggressively. But she would quickly be faced with the challenges of the global pandemic and the crippling economy that followed.

“The beginning of the year was going great, and I had a lot of opportunities that made me feel like I made the right decision. When late March/early April came around, I freaked out and didn’t know if I could make it. I couldn’t see people or work; it was a super scary time to be a photographer. I think what got me through the year was knowing that I wasn’t alone and that so many other photographers and creatives were struggling on how to get work and make it through the crazy times. I learned how to keep going, and how to not take anything too seriously. I still have a long way to go, but if I had just given up, I wouldn’t be where I am today.  I really needed 2020 to figure out what works for me and to prepare myself for a year where things were possible again”.

Like many creatives coming out of the pandemic, Perez has shown great resiliency and has put all her energy into her work. Her natural talent and developed craft have caught the eye of many credible brands, landing her images in the likes of Vogue Italia, Anthropology, and The H Hub Collective to name a few, but she openly admits that it’s her love for her city, San Antonio, TX that keeps her constantly motivated.

“I feel like San Antonio is an untapped source for creatives and a great place to start anything and be anything. Unlike New York or L.A., San Antonio doesn’t have a huge list of go-to photographers that shoot or are interested in the same stuff as I am, so it always gets me really excited to think about the potential of what I can do.”
