George Sheldon

I am a Lancaster, Pennsylvania photographer. I specialize in creating editorial and stock images. When I am not busy creating stock or shooting for a magazine or book publisher I photograph people at events, or produce headshots and portraits.

A native Pennsylvanian, the people, places, and events in, around and near the Commonwealth inspire much of my work. Whether it the technical or emotive sides, creating imagery is my passion that continues to challenge and inspire me.

I have written and published over 35 books (I’ve actually lost count of how many I created). All of my books were nonfiction.

I sold my first photos when I was 13 – and I am still behind the lens over 50 years later.
