Anna Blank is a commercial and fashion based photographer, living in Chicago, Illinois.
Born in the Chicago suburbs but raised on the lush West coast of Florida, Anna claims her relationship with the camera was built on the beach. Bikini clad and covered in sand, Anna would spend her teen years photographing surfers, locals, and her closest friends amongst the warm and vibrant scenes of Siesta Key, Florida. Before she could even turn sixteen years of age, Anna had built lifelong connections with major swimwear brands such as TRIANGL, BOUTINE Los Angeles, and Showpo.
In her early twenties Anna studied her craft at Columbia College Chicago where she graduated Summa Cum Laude with her photography degree in 2021. Through her time in college she extensively studied alternative process and printmaking, as well as the technical side of studio photography where she mastered a wide range of gear and strobes.
Aside from photography, some of her other passions are interior design, architecture, and traveling to new places. She dabbles in set design, furniture refinishing, and on-set styling. She spends her free time with her dog, reading, going to see live music, and being outside as much as a human in Chicago can be.
