Sports & Special Events Photography

If you've ever tried to take sports photos, you know how hard it is to get that perfect shot.  Sports photography is difficult without the proper access, equipment, and experience.  Mark Moran, a veteran of the newspaper industry, has all of the above. 

Mark has captured every kind of sporting event, from Penn State football games, NASCAR races, and golf tournaments to high school soccer games, swim meets, and Little League - and just about everything in between.  Contact us at  to speak to Mark about shooting an event for you. 

Mark also shoots social functions, feature pictures, product and promotional photos, engagements, graduations, pet portraits, corporate events, and custom stock photography.  He has even suited up to shoot some feature photos of honeybees in their hive!  You can rest assured that you'll be hiring an experienced photographer working for you no matter what the occasion.

In addition, Mark can provide Litigation Support Services to attorneys who need accurate and credible photographic evidence (injuries, accidents scenes, forensic evidence, property damage, faulty machinery, etc.) to support a case.    


Over the years, he has earned the respect of coaches, officials, and athletes alike, and his efforts have resulted in five awards from the Pennsylvania Newspaper Association and three from the Society of Professional Journalists, including a 2011 First Place Sports Photo award.  To learn more about these and other honors click here
