Pet photography so you can treasure your pets forever. I will take photos of your pet/s in the comfort of their own surroundings. Please visit my website for more information. How about a gift for someone who loves their pet?

I donate a portion of the fee to animal charities. Thanks.

In the relatively short time that one has used the power of photography to educate, inspire, and shape modern culture, JAnthony has captured some of the most powerful and poignant moments ever witnessed. Evoking emotion and provoking thought, long after first view -- a powerful photograph can render a poet's adjectives pallid; here then is such an image, "a picture is worth a thousand words." is a company based on telling the stories through photographs of the amazing people that are honored throughout the Colorado Springs area.

I have served many years in my community for March of Dimes Board of Directors, Goodwill Industries Board of Directors, Member of Colorado Springs & Denver Young Professionals, A Graduate of Leadership Pikes Peak (2007), President's Council Member for Colorado Springs Chamber of Commerce, Chaplain with the El Paso County Sheriff's Office, Colorado Springs Chamber of Commerce Ambassador. Colorado Springs Business Roundtable and many others to remember. is about highlighting the many wonderful and worthy events in the Colorado Springs area each week. Documenting the experience for those who want to relive it and those who could not make it. To show the positive side to Colorado Springs.

Colorado Springs has each week many networking events, charity events, and general community events that capture the true spirit of our town. Our community. As the old saying so rightfully goes, "A picture is worth a thousand words".

Come to our site to see what great events are coming up as well as what you may just want to put on your calendar for next year. We'll also be partnering specifically on certain causes and hope to draw attention to local needs. Stop back often to get the inside scoop of what lies ahead.


I don’t charge to shoot these events. I only ask that—in order to continue funding Everything 719—you consider me for your next portrait shoot, or recommend me to someone who is looking for a photographer. I can provide a number of services including:

Holiday Portraits
Senior Portraits
Head Shots
Model Portfolio
and anything else we can come up with!

Let me tell you more about my portfolio so we can get started as soon as possible!

Thank you in advance for your kind assistance and consideration.

Finally, I am principally an artist. I do this stuff out of a lifelong love for photography, a profound appreciation of the 'human mystique' and a quest for personal and artistic growth. This is a welcome and decided change from what I have done for most of my career.

I want to develop as a photographer and a person, and to express my vision and ambition to find beauty, serenity and peace in this lifetime. I enjoy meeting new people and I deeply appreciate the individual style.

This adventure in pursuit of beautiful images, a clear vision and refined technical skills is a balm to the sores wrought by tragedy, war, torment and heartbreak. I try to use my work to uplift, inspire and share.

It soothes and feeds the soul. And that, my friends, is what it's all about.

Join The Colorado Academy of Music and Dance on Tuesday, December 1st at 7:00 p.m. the Colorado Academy of Music and Dance at 975 Garden of the Gods Rd Ste F for a Free Beginning Tap Class and that night only, enroll in ongoing classes and receive a FREEE PAIR OF TAP SHOES!

Tap dancing is a fun style of dance that anyone can learn, regardless of previous dance experience. It's a great way to increase cardiovascular conditioning, strength, flexibility and coordination, building strength in the legs and increasing flexibility in the hips, knees and ankles. Cognitive abilities are also enhanced, as tap dancers must develop both mental and muscle memory to become proficient at tapping. Tap dancing also develops a great sense of rhythm and timing. Tap instructors help students focus on music awareness while incorporating tap steps and combinations. Best of all - it's fun!

The class is open to Adults and Teens ages 14 and up. No previous dance experience is required. Wear comfortable clothing and tap shoes or hard-soled street shoes. Pre-registration is recommended. For more information or to register, please call (719) 635-1004 or email Tap shoes may be pre-ordered by contacting the Academy by November 28th.
