Thank you for taking the time to visit Pavely Photography!
I am a Pittsburgh-based sports photographer who has been covering the "City of Champions" for 30 years.
Whether the professionally athlete on the big stage (Super Bowls, White House, Hall of Fame, Stanly Cup...), or the youth athlete getting their start in sandlot ball, covering sports and the athlete is my passion.
For the pros, I cover the Penguins, Pirates, and Steelers for USA Today Sports Images.
Local youth sports leagues, tournament teams, and school sports teams are regular clients. This includes baseball, basketball, diving, runners, soccer, swimming, and tae Kwon-do.
My clients are usually word of mouth. The leagues and teams I work with keep inviting me back for the next season. They like my personality, flexibility, willingness to adapt, the ease of working together, my unobtrusive photojournalism approach to taking pictures, and most important, they love the final product they get. Whether it is getting peak action or a nice portrait, I can be counted on.
If you are looking for a sports branding visual package, I do that too. We invest a lot of money into our kids (I know, I have active children) as we hope they can make it to the next level. Why not give them a top-notch professional product you are proud to share. Video or still images, it doesn't matter.
Sometimes, a short video or still images are requested from an academy, school, or organization potentially looking at your child to see what they can do athletically. It may take a couple of games to get footage for a highlight reel, but by blending my fresh action with any video you may have, we will make a customized video to fit your needs.
If you have any questions or want me to cover your sporting event, please feel free to reach out to me in the “Contact” section on the website.
