Anthony M. Puopolo found his lifes passion and a career, early, looking through the viewfinder of a still camera. Prior to graduating high school he commuted to night classes at New York Citys Fashion Institute of Technology. Summer classes there followed high school graduation and then full time matriculation, leading to a degree in Photography. An opportunity came up to work in the rental department of the professionals camera store,
Calumet Photographic N.Y., and Anthony accepted. Still at F.I.T. and working at Calumet part-time, Anthony began a four month internship with the internationally known celebrity photographer Timothy White, then another, for ten months, with Stockland Martel, a well regarded artists agency representing over thirty world renown photographers. Anthony was discovering the touchstones of the business as well as continuing to evolve in his own right as a photographer.

With graduation behind him, Anthony continued to shape his growth by freelance assisting for numerous photographers in and around the NYC metro area. Traveling to Chicago, Tennessee, & Los Angeles on assignment, Anthony was now attracting freelance work as a photographer. He began working in 2003 as a full time First Assistant, Studio Manager and Contributing Photographer for Comstock Images, an international stock photo company.
In May of 2004, Anthony accepted an offer to return to work for Timothy White as a full time staff assistant, while he continued to manage his own company.

In November 2006, Anthony returned to freelance work knowing the level of photography with which he wants to create. He continues to work on his fine art collection, as well as manage both companies, AMPtography & AMPPrints, which he co-owners with his wife Wendy-Lynn Puopolo since 2003.
