A Fort Worth native, raised in Austin, and now living in Wimberley, TX, Anschutz began working as a commercial photographer in the mid 1960's after earning a marketing degree from the University of Texas.

Early on, he covered events like the Austin Aqua Festival, Texas Relays, and Youth in Government, The Longhorn Jazz Festival, and Bluebonnet Girls State. In the late 1970's his company, Photo Graphics, begin to offer Graphic Arts Camera Services to artists, designers, printers and ad agencies.

In the 1980's he helped form the Austin Graphic Arts Society and served as it's first president. From 1980-86 he was honored by the Austin Association of Advertising Agency Principles as Vendor Person or Vendor Company of the year. From 1985 to 2001 he published the Austin/San Antonio Creative Directory.

In the 1990's he served on the advisory board for the creative arts department of Austin Community College and was a member of the board of directors of the Austin Advertising Federation. In 2001 he received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Advertising Federation.

Today, Anschutz documents the beauty of the Texas Hill Country through photography. His work has been in Cowboys & Indians Magazine, the Wimberley Guide, Austin Monthly, UT Football Programs, and the Texas Longhorn Journal.
