I’m Deb Schell, a Central Pennsylvania-based photographic artist.
I've been creating images since I went on a trip to Alaska with my grandfather at the age of 16.
It was then that I realized I wanted to learn more about the magic of photography and decided to go to school to focus on learning the art of capturing a moment in time as a photojournalist.
Following graduation, I worked in the newspaper industry at various news publications from 2005-2015.
Now I enjoy photographing local musician, actors, and improvisors, in addition to local landscape and architecture.
I also work to promote peace with Peace Day Philly, a nonprofit organization I became involved with after participating in events on the International Day of Peace in 2013. You can learn more about my work with PDP on my blog, Images4Peace.
From 2012 - 2017 I exhibited my artwork at more than 30 venues in Central Pa.
Recently, I worked with the Radisson Hotel Harrisburg to provide 650 pieces of Harrisburg artwork for 125 newly-renovated guest bedrooms in 2014.
In 2017 I worked with the Harrisburg based law firm, McNees Wallace & Nurick LLC to provide artwork for their newly-renovated conference rooms.
Please contact me if you are interested in purchasing artwork for your office or home.
