About Shane Keller
Growing up in a small town near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania I started
photographing my friends skateboarding, but was unhappy with
the poor results. My desire to capture stunning peak action shots
inspired me to study photography at my local community college.
Following in my brother’s footsteps I joined the Marine Corps in
2003 as a combat photographer. I spent over two years deployed
in Iraq and made thousands of photographs, documenting
everything from night raids to humanitarian aid missions at local
hospitals. My photographs were published in both the U.S. and
internationally. Being even more aware of our world I decided to
study photojournalism at Rochester Institute of Technology.
At RIT I majored in photojournalism and minored in imaging systems. I also studied color management, multimedia, forensics, special effects, ballistics, and underwater photography. I received the Gitner Scholarship for top portfolio in 2011 and had my work displayed in several RIT honor shows.
After college I worked as a freelance photographer for the York Daily Record, GEICO, and other clients. I'm now a military photography instructor at the Defense Information School. I teach photography, video, audio, multimedia, file management, studio, crime scene photography, and caption writing to the U.S. military, preparing them to be combat photographers and mass communication specialists.
As a dedicated underwater photographer I constantly seek advanced training to allow me to dive longer and deeper to explore places many people have not seen. I want to travel the earth to document the underwater world to bring awareness to the amazing life below the water and the environmental concerns that ultimately affect all of us.
I'm available for assignments in southern Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Washington, D.C.
