After receiving my B.S. in Biobehavioral Health from Penn State, I spent a short time working in the mental health field. However, it didn’t take long before my true passion for photography began to require more of me than just weekends. With very little money in the bank and the unwavering support of my husband, I decided to finally test the waters for myself. I landed a job managing a local fine art photography business for a brilliant photographer. Even today, I am still discovering the subtleties I acquired simply from watching him at work.
In 2008, with a grateful heart (and no small amount of courage) I launched Jana Scott Photography. I specialize in weddings because of my desire to capture love, and I create fine art rust images because of my desire to find beauty in the unlikeliest of places.
Despite the popularity of digital photography, I have spent long hours working with film over the years — from behind the lens, as well as in the darkroom. In fact, I shot my first wedding in film in 2003.
The journey from childhood snapshots to professional imagery has been filled with adversity, but also with great joy. Along the way, my drive to photograph the world and the people around me has never abated.
