Photographers Sharing the Beauty of the PA Wilds

June 15, 2024 is Nature Photography Day; a chance to celebrate our nature-loving photographers in the PA Wilds who help capture the beauty of the region. From animals of the Allegheny National Forest, to overlooks at the PA Grand Canyon, there are plenty of views to capture. Whether it is a phone or a camera, taking a snapshot of the moment can allow you to display and relive a treasured memory.

Another way to celebrate this day is by supporting our photographers and taking home an image that inspires us to care for our surroundings and preserve them for future generations. Bring the outside indoors through prints, canvases, books, puzzles and more.

Meet some of our PA Wilds nature photographers and products they are offering on the PA Wilds Marketplace:

Steve Brady, Brady Photography

Steve is the eye and heart behind Brady Photography's lens, where each frame is not just captured, but co-created with the spirit of the Wilds. His journey with photography began in the late 1970s, a gift from his father along with his old Minolta film camera. It sparked a love that has only deepened with time.

The changing tools from dark rooms to LightRoom have enhanced the way he conveys the stories of the PA Wilds—those rolling mountains, the serene Rose Valley Lake, the quiet wilderness—that all come alive in his photographs. He has sought to not just photograph but to translate the emotional tapestry of nature into a visual symphony.

His collection, available at shopthepawilds.com, offers you more than just prints. It's an invitation to experience and share the beauty of the PA Wilds. Whether it's through a fine art piece adorning your wall or a greeting card sent to a loved one, each image is an echo of the wilderness, meant to inspire and transform your living space into a gallery of natural wonder.

Allison Schanbacher, Owl and Moon Creative

Allison grew up in the Pittsburgh area, dreaming of living in the PA Wilds where her family had a vacation home/hunting camp. She never left on an adventure without her camera, capturing hundreds of images through the lens and documenting her family memories.

When she turned 18, she decided to make her dream a reality and located to Tioga County to pursue higher education. It wasn't long before she planted her roots when purchasing her first home, and soon after purchased her first DSLR camera. From there, the rest is history. Her hope is that you enjoy the images she has as much as she enjoys creating them!

Linda Stager, PA Suncatcher
