About Amy Wise Bacis.
Amy’s passion in photography began at age 15 with a hand-me-down Minolta that was assembled before she was born, lacked any means of auto focus, and to this day resides securely in her arsenal of photography gear. Her insatiable desire to capture moments, objects, and emotions on a still frame continues to translate into a portfolio that encompasses architecture, landscapes, people, and events.
