Anthony Calleja grew up on the Mediterranean archipelago of Malta surrounded by the rich history of the ancient Greeks and Romans. When he got his first camera at age 11 he used the history of the islands and the flavor of the Maltese people as the inspiration for his photography. It's not surprising, then, that after moving to the U.S. it wasn't long before another group of islands caught his eye. Tony moved to Hawaii in 1992 and he's been sharing his photographic talents with local couples and visiting families alike ever since. To ensure professional production, he employs a photojournalistic approach during all photo shoots and enhances all images through detailed retouches using Photoshop.
