Josh Anon ~'Red-crowned Crane'

Josh Anon has been a nature photographer for over 18 years, starting before entering high school in Erie, PA. However, his interest in photography started when he received his first Kodak 110 camera at the ripe old age of 4. Camera in hand, he received a BS in computer science from Northwestern University in Evanston, IL. After graduating, Josh started working at Pixar Animation Studios in Emeryville, California. There, he worked on The IncrediblesRatatouilleUpToy Story 3, and more. At Pixar, he worked as a Camera and Staging Artist (cinematographer), a Linux and OS X software developer, and more.  In 2012, he left Pixar for Lytro, where he worked as a Senior Product Manager. In late 2013, he left Lytro and began working on starting a feature film development company.  Anon has also written a number of software programs including FlipBook for iOS, which has had millions of downloads. His photography work has been featured in various galleries, calendars, and magazines, including The Smithsonian, The San Diego Natural History Museum, Nature's Best, Photo Media and much more.  Josh has donated this beautiful framed photograph of a juvenile red-crowned crane from Hokkaido, Japan.
