Hi, I'm Anné,
I’m a brand photographer and designer based out of Tampa Bay, FL with over 30 years in fashion and over 15 years of branding and marketing experience.
Every brand is different - which is why I’m so passionate about creating unique and customized visuals that tell your story, bring your brand to life, and make your dream clients ache to work with you.
My superpower is making even the most camera-shy person feel comfortable in front of my camera. I genuinely care about my clients which is why so many return to me year after year.
I encourage you to contact me with any questions you have. I would love to provide you my skills to elevate your business visuals and attract more clients.
Your idea becomes the vision through the lens of my camera.
A little more about me ...
Welcome to my page! Although this site isn't meant to be about me, I believe knowing who you might be collaborating is quite important. I try to be short and not take much of your time.
I was born and raised in a small country called Estonia. From an early age I was exposed to both visual arts (painting, drawing, photography etc.) and performing arts (ballroom dancing, singing, acting). Almost my entire life I've been passionate about fashion, beauty, and design. Prior my debut to United States I lived in Sweden for a few years where many opportunities opened up for me to collaborate in the fashion industry by modeling and working on multiple art and design projects.
In 2007, while I graduated from St. Petersburg College, FL where I studied marketing, graphic design and photography, I founded AP Grafik Studio, LLC focusing on brand design and marketing. Simultaneously, I founded Anné Phillips Photography combining my expertise in modeling, dance, design and my passion in fashion and beauty.
For the first few years as Anné Phillips Photography, I traveled the world photographing models and runways, including Mercedes Benz Fashion Week and Caribbean Fashion Week. I’ve also supported my hometown of Tampa, Florida by serving ten consecutive years as Fashion Week Tampa Bay's lead photographer. Additionally I’ve given my time and talent to many worthy causes which is a component of my mission.
My work has been published in books as well as in both local and international magazines.
In my diverse photography career I've captured everything from fashion, events, corporate, weddings to shoots that solidify your personal brand. I absolutely love working with people from different backgrounds and industries. As a business owner in the creative field, I understand the utmost importance of a visual communication, and therefore I am so passionate about helping businesses get noticed in this saturated marketplace with my customized branding photography.
Those who have worked with me say that I am professional, friendly, an expert in placement and lighting, and an outside-the-box thinker. Yet, I like to describe myself as a visionary and a problem solver ... your idea becomes the vision through the lens of my camera!
Please enjoy looking around my site and hopefully I'll hear from you!
