Anaïs Possamaï

BIENVENUE!

THIS IS HOW YOU SAY MY NAME:
AH-NAH-EES and yes my names are spelled with two " ï "

YOU FOUND THE REAL FRENCH STEREOTYPE. I CURSE A LOT (IN FRENCH). BUT I ALWAYS EXCUSE MY FRENCH WHEN I DO! I COULD FEED MYSELF ALL DAY WITH CHEESE. I LOVE FOOD AND IF I WASN’T A PHOTOGRAPHER I WOULD PROBABLY BE A FOOD BLOGGER!

I'M FROM THE COUNTRYSIDE OF THE CHAMPAGNE AREA, I GREW UP FAR FROM CITIES AND THE FAST LIFE. I LEFT FRANCE WHEN I WAS 21 TO EXPLORE WHAT WAS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE OCEAN.

I THRIVE IN THE MOUNTAINS AND OUTDOORS BUT TAKE ME TO A CITY WITH THE BEST FOOD SCENE AND I’M IN HEAVEN! I ADAPT EVERYWHERE I GO. IT DOESN’T MATTER TO ME WHERE YOU’RE TAKING ME, I’M ALWAYS IN FOR A GREAT JOURNEY! I LOVE NYC AS MUCH AS I LOVE THE FRENCH ALPS.

HOW DID I START PHOTOGRAPHY?

is one of the questions I get a lot.

Traveling. Simple and easy!

I didn’t pick up a camera when I was 2 yo or got it from my dad when I was a kid. I had to wait to be old enough and making my own damn life to afford a camera. I bought a one-way flight and never looked back.

WHY?

So I could remember places I’ve been, people I met but most importantly the way I felt.

Photography took me places and made me who I am now. I traveled to photograph places and now I travel to photograph you in your favorite place.

There is nothing more important for me than for you to always remember why and how you felt that day.

-Hiking and climbing are what I like to do the most when I’m free. My favorite hikes are the ones with a view to reward you at the end of the trail.
-We eloped twice! Once in NJ to sign our marriage license and in Yosemite for the real deal!
-Photograph the Northern lights is my absolute dream.
