For artists who give a sh*t


    Nathan J. Shaulis


    I fell in love with photography the very first moment my father laid a manual film camera in my 12-year-old hands. I studied and practiced for years, learning every aspect of each successive tool by taking photos of anything and everything, finding a special kinship with nature.


    As an artist, I love supporting other artists through photography.  Artists of all media need clean, clear, and representative images for their work for a myriad of applications and I love meeting that need.


    I am a member of Professional Photographers of America, American Society of Media Photographers and National Association of Photoshop Professionals. My work has been published in Pittsburgh Magazine, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Pittsburgh Tribune Review, Pittsburgh City Paper, Whirl and The Jewish Chronicle.

    I am enthusiastic about helping artists and creative business owners find success. I've found that writing artist statements, bios, grant proposals, and more can be unreasonably challenging to those that put all their energy into creative work. Plus, designing business cards or other print pieces can be overwhelming when graphics and layout are not their chosen medium. We can't all be great at everything, right?


    I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a BFA in Fine Art, with a double concentration in Painting and Sculpture, and a BA in Psychology in 2006. I earned my Masters of Arts Management from the Heinz College in 2007. Since then, I've served as the Design & New Media Manager at Pittsburgh Glass Center, an organization dedicated to supporting glass artists.
