Anna Maria believes that camera equipment can be bought, craft can be taught and technique can be developed. But a keen eye and unique perspective are gifts that one is born with. Anna Maria was blessed to have been born with those gifts. Anna Maria's reason for traveling, is to gain a perspective on life and humanity that could not be found within her own comfort zone. She wishes to continue to travel with purpose and document her experiences, to help deteriorate stereotypes, preserve nature, reveal the humanity that exists in everyone and inspire others to also travel. Her main interests in travel and photography are landscapes, nature, people, music, food and city streets. She believes that beauty lives in everyone and everything. It is her mission as a photographer to reveal the beauty in subjects that one might commonly dismiss. There is nothing Anna Maria loves more than getting lost with her camera, and then lost in the moment.
