Wax Cracker is proud to add Christopher T. Shannon to its stable of strong photographers. I am excited to bring together Chris’ sports photography to put alongside the works of Andy Waplinger and Dinur Blum. Welcome to the Wax Cracker family, Chris!
Christopher Shannon is a freelance photographer based in Central Pennsylvania. He is consistently given assignments from local newspapers including The (Lewistown) Sentinel and Altoona Mirror. He has covered major news events including speeches by former Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell and current United States President Barack Obama. He also covers many youth, high school, college, and professional sporting events in the central Pennsylvania region, including Penn State athletics and State College Spikes minor baseball affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals.
Additionally, Christopher provides freelance coverage of various NCAA Tournament and Championship events for participating college and university athletic departments. His most notable event coverage came in 2013 when he covered the NCAA Men’s Gymnastics Championship for four universities including the University of Oklahoma, University of Iowa, the Ohio State University, and the U.S. Air Force Academy.
