Anacleto has placed his passion for storytelling at the heart of every picture he has taken over a more than three-decade professional career.
As a staff photographer at the Los Angeles Times for over two decades, Anacleto brought us four Presidential campaigns, five Olympic Games, three World Cup Soccer tournaments, three Academy Award shows and countless breaking news stories and sporting events. His gift for visually capturing historic moments broadened his understanding of world and national events and afforded him the chance to chronicle news events as they unfolded throughout the United States as well as in foreign locales such as South Africa, Australia, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, Singapore, Guatemala, Mexico and Canada.
While at the Los Angeles Times, Anacleto shared three Pulitzer Prizes for team coverage in news, and individually he received a Pulitzer nomination for his photography at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta. Anacleto is an award-winning photojournalist who began teaching at Brooks Institute as a full-time faculty member in 2005.

He shoots freelance for editorial and commercial clients. Anacleto continues to tell life's stories, using his camera to portray the profound relationships between people and their environments.
