Peter Ansara


Pete Ansara has spent nearly 30 years off and on with the camera. From a 110 instamatic to medium format and now shooting with a Nikon D300 digital format he likes to shoot all genres. He learned, not at university, school or college, but from other people that took the time and patience to teach him. He started in the darkroom at King Salmon Air Force Station, Alaska while stationed in the United States Air Force at the age of 18 in 1977. He met an old timer who shot medium format and mixed lots of chemicals in the dark room. This is where his inquisitive mind grew. Shortly thereafter, he purchased his first “real” camera, a Canon AE-1 and became a madman behind the camera and in the darkroom and has never looked back. He has twenty-five years of active and reserve military service with the United States Air Force. He has served in the capacity of Chief Executive Officer in both the public and private sectors. He’s as Yankee as Paul Revere and a “die hahd” Boston Red Sox Fan!
