I am a freelance photographer working for the Pocono Record and the Pocono Sports Extra in northeast Pennsylvania. My favorite subject is sports but any subject will do just fine for this photojournalist! My name is Bob Shank and I am a graduate of Temple University with a Communications degree in the Magazine Sequence. My favorite class was photography where each week I would take my camera out on the weekly assignment, develop the film in my apartment darkroom, and then make enlargements in Temple's darkroom. From these early film experiences, I slowly began to capture moments that were fun and sometimes memorable. Now I have switched almost entirely to digital photography and am buidling a portfolio of numerous subjects. I enjoy wildlife & nature photography because it gets me out into the outdoors where I can experience the beauty of nature in all its splendor! The Pennsylvania Elk are one of my most favorite wildlife subjects and I get to see them frequently at my camp in Benezette, Elk County. I mostly enjoy capturing sports action with my camera and have become more proficient in freezing the action and making these memorable moments into prints. My 9 years of coaching experience provides a solid background and insight in how to better capture the special moments during a game. I lead several wildlife photography trips and workshops with my good friend and professional photographer, Dick McCreight. I also enjoy sharing in special photography outings with my son, James, who is becoming an accomplished photographer in his own right.
