Welcome to Anthony Kniss Photography
About Anthony Kniss Photography -
Originally founded by myself, Brendon Tippie, and Kris Kaczmarek in 2004. Our initial project that brought us together was a local high school play. My mother filmed my youngest sister at her play rehearsal and just for fun, I made a copy of it and sent it in with Marcy to see what the music teacher, Mrs Gelson, thought and out of this first joke, turned into the opportunity for us to make some profit. All 3 of use had video photography background but we have never thought about taking our work and making into a tangible product for a client. So then we went on to film the whole play on its live night and sent home flyers with all the students allowing them the chance to own a copy of the play that they stared in. We made out pretty good in the end selling over 200 copies.
From then on we were looking for more chances to get the word out that we were looking for clients to help save their memories for them. Unfortunately, some management fell through and there was restructuring in the ranks and we all went our separate ways doing our own projects. When confronted if N3 Productions would ever return in 2007, it looks as if the name was dead and never to return after making good on our first and only project. Now enter Antonio Fajardo, my cousin who was living in the Philippines. He came over to visit us in the states and put a bug in my ear that any production or project isn't just video, but everything that encompasses making a good product. This includes digital graphic design and still photography. Expanding into a whole new realm that can bring in more clients just completely changed my view on the whole free enterprise dream. After seeing some of his photos, I was hooked on wanting to take the still side of art and flourish it through the N3 name. I purchased my first digital SLR with the help of my parents in 2008 and have not stopped clicking since.
Right now, the business is just running under my name but I still call on my friends for help when needed. Since 2008, we have done a handful more video projects usually weddings, numerous photo shoots, and even designed a few restaurant menus. I have taken the chance to make money and turned it into an opportunity to express my artistic side, usually charging little to nothing for my work but asking others to appreciate the work that I do and give me praise when they show the shots off to their friends and family.
If you are looking to schedule a photo shoot or discuss a projects, please head over to the Contact page and fill in the needed information and I will get back to you as soon as possible. Thank you.
