About Anne Marie

Anne Marie Leone is a freelance photojournalist and videographer. She has been director of photography for Women's News, staff photographer for The Rivertowns Enterprise, and contributing writer/photographer for The Scarsdale Inquirer, Westchester Magazine, and Hudson Valley Magazine.


A  native New Yorker, Ms. Leone resides in Ossining along the Hudson River, one of her photographic passions. Her Hudson River photographs are published weekly in the Rivertowns Enterprise. Large archival prints of Hudson River themes have been exhibited at several regional libraries. A permanent installation of Hudson region images hangs at the Holiday Inn, The Hudson Valley Manor, in Mt. Kisco, New York.


Ms. Leone travels extensively for business and pleasure. Her global images depict travel from Florida to Alaska, the Caribbean to the Mediterranean, and lands as far away as Australia and Antarctica.


Interested in local history, Ms. Leone is co-author with Larchmont historian Jay Doolin Spikes of a collection of photo histories-- Larchmont Then and Now (2002), New Rochelle Then and Now (2004), Irvington Then and Now (2004)--and a series, “Then and Now in the Rivertowns,” published weekly in the Rivertowns Enterprise. These publications are based on images from early 20th-century postcards and other sources, paired with 21st-century photographs of the same sites taken as nearly as possible from the same vantage points. A brief history of each site is given.


Also an event photographer, Ms. Leone photographs weddings, Baptisms, First Communions, Bar(Bat)-Mitzvahs, birthdays, anniversaries, and local activities in a lively, photographic style.


Her love of animals has added dog and cat “paw-traits” to her current portfolio.


Before launching her photography career, Ms. Leone was an instructor in the Communications Media Arts program at Roosevelt High School in Yonkers, where she directed "State of the Art," a cable series about art and artists, and hosted "JUST ENGLISH!" an interactive show teaching English to adults of limited English proficiency.
