Hey there. I’m Anthony Gauna (he/him/they). Since 2012, I've been helping people look & feel their authentic selves in photos when they normally feel awkward having their picture taken. My hope is to photograph everyone’s stories as authentically as possible.
I have never been a religious person. But I believe photography is sacred. In those moments of being behind the lens, you make a vulnerable connection with the person, people, or landscape on the other side. And it is a sacred connection. Who we are as people shapes that connection. This is something I take seriously.
I am a cisman and I know that shapes the considerations many take when deciding if I am the person to take photos of them – especially with intimate portraiture. Many people – especially women and folks in the LGBTQ+ community – have justifiable reasons for being hesitant when working with men photographers. Photography is sacred and I intend to keep it that way.
I honestly spend a lot of time taking photos because it keeps me grounded and positive. I love meeting new people and creating art not just for them, but with them. My best work happens when a connection is made with the people I work with.
When I’m not busy working on my business you’ll find me in my cozy apartment with my wife Amanda, our son Ethan, and our cat Nermal. I enjoy playing guitar, listening to loud music, going on walks, sipping on Lone Star beer, and BBQing in the hot Texas sun.
