Pamela Anticole is a documentary photographer who began her career as a photojournalist for greater Pittsburgh’s local newspaper The Valley News Dispatch.
A professional photographer trained at the university level, Pamela is a journalist with a unique approach to storytelling: she uses both photographs and words to weave the reader through her observations and bring him/her to her point of view.
Since becoming a mother, her new perspective invades her photo projects and permeates her subject matter… She is currently working on a professional documentary photo story that encompasses the personal identity crisis that motherhood presents, particularly for women who suffered from anxiety and depression prior to becoming a mother.
She is interviewing mothers who travel, those who continue to seek out their freedom after becoming a parent and travel alone, and investigating the emotional journey to arrive at this place of balancing motherhood and sense of personal self.
When photographing a scene, Pamela brings a fresh, candid approach to normally difficult subjects through her easy and relaxed demeanor. She operates a family and event photography business in her hometown of Pittsburgh, and is continuously on her own journey of building her sense of self outside of parenthood.
Pamela has been awarded photography awards from FPJA and the Documentary Family Awards, and guest published in blogs and websites online. She is available for documentary photography work as well as speaking engagements.
She is currently working on her first book, an inspirational journal and how-to guide for moms who want to learn how to document their children growing up.
