Beware of Phishing scam! I am not hiring anyone to work for me.
I am sorry to report that someone is sending emails and placing ads for an administrative assistant to work for me. This is a phishing scam that is being reported to the authorities. I am not hiring for any positions. If you receive an ad or email claiming to be Michael Anderson for any type of work with my company, it is a fake and I encourage you to report the individual to the authorities if that is possible. I'm very sorry if this scam has affected anyone adversely.

I'm back from South America. New images!
I spent the last 2 months traversing the wilderness continent, from the windswept dunes of northern Brazil to the crystalline icebergs of Argentine Patagonia. I came face to face with a puma in the middle of the night below Fitzroy, trekked 50 miles barefoot across a spectacular wilderness of sand dunes, and was lucky enough to get on the first train back to Machu Picchu after the disastrous floods of the past winter. I've got lots of stories and images and share, and I hope you enjoy the ride. NEW IMAGES. Also, be sure to check my travel journal for new entries!
South America, here I come!
A brand new Travel Journal! New Entries and more coverage of Old Stories
I've completely revised the travel journal. Now it's interactive, so you can comment or ask questions. I've added new articles and updated older ones. The newest article: "The Long Way to Paradise" is up right now. Check it out! https://www.michaelandersongallery.com//blog/
Samoa Tsunami Images and more from the South Pacific.
I've begun posting images from our trip through the South Pacific, including a few of the Samoa Tsunami devastation. Although the trip started out on an ominous note, the tectonic activity in the Pacific finally died down and we ended up having some amazing adventures and met some wonderful people along the way. We made it through Samoa, Tonga, The Solomon Islands, The Cook Islands, and then spent a few days on Bora Bora in Tahiti at the end. This was my first foray into underwater photography and I'm glad I brought this new equipment to show you the amazing world under the surface of the South Pacific. It's a real paradise down there. I will be adding lots more new images over the next few weeks. I hope you enjoy them: Newest Images
The Samoa Earthquake and Tsunami: Dodging a bullet of Epic Proportions
We were here in Samoa on Ofu Island when the Earthquake shook us out of bed and we ran out of our lodge to avoid car size boulders crashing down from the cliffs above us. After 60 seconds, it was over, but we immediately realized the threat of a Tsunami. A full account of our experience can be found in my travel journal HERE.
Sorella Gallery Show in Zion National Park!
I just sent 25 of my best Large Gallery Prints to the Sorella Gallery in Zion National Park! My images are the new showcase exhibit just in time for the incredible fall season. For those that don't know this already, Zion has one of the finest displays of fall foliage in the world! The Sorella Gallery is next to the famous 'Pizza Noodle' restaurant in the heart of Springdale, Utah, the gateway to Zion. The show starts Monday, September 21.
Returning to The South Pacific!
I'll be returning to The South Pacific this fall, focusing my time in some of the more remote island chains. I will be researching a location that I think could make a world class WORKSHOP destination for next year.
I'll be starting off in the rugged island chain of Samoa and will make a return visit to spectacular Ofu Island in the National Park of American Samoa. Then on to the isolated atolls of Tonga where I hope to photograph some of the most dramatic coastlines in the Pacific. From there I head to the stunning and rarely visited Solomon Islands. Isolation has helped preserve the exotic Melanesian cultural traditions and this is perhaps the most authentic travel destination in the Pacific. I hope to spend a week canoeing through the New Georgia Islands and Marovo Lagoon, the largest in the world and a place so special James Michener called the 8th Wonder of the World. Then I go back to the glorious Cook Islands to try and capture a few photographs that I missed the last time around.
I'm expecting lots of adventure and hope to get some great images from a rarely photographed and exquisitely beautiful part of the world. Stay tuned for lots of new work and I will be sharing all the adventures in my travel journal!

The official end of the show bash will be from 6-9pm on Friday September 18th, but I was just invited to continue part of my show through January, 2010.

The John Fielder/Reed Photo Arts Gallery is on Santa Fe and 8th Street in Denver's historic Art District.
