NVP - Stew Schrauger, Natural Visions Photography
Stew Schrauger, of Natural Visions Photography got bitten by the camera bug, while serving in the US Air Force from 1968-1972, where he was assigned to the National Security Agency as a Turkish intelligence interpreter/analyst. Shortly after the Air Force, he started doing photos for local newspapers and shooting weddings in Montgomery and Bucks Counties, in Pennsylvania. In 1974, he reenlisted in the Air Force ( local active reserve unit in Willow Grove, Pa) as unit photographer for the 913th Tactical Airlift Group (1974-1976). From the mid-70s to the 90s, he did a lot of entertainment (rock) photography for newspapers, radio stations, concert promoters, record labels, and publicity shots for bands/musical artists.
During that time, he was helped cover a lot of major auto races each year (NASCAR, Indy/Cart, and Formula One) free-lancing for the Associated Press at Watkins Glen, NY; Pocono and Nazareth, PA , as well as a few other race tracks. From 1982- 2005, he did free-lance work for several Bucks County, PA newspapers (winning awards), covering sports, community events, features, and spot news.
In the last 25 years or so, he has pursued wildlife / nature photography with a passion, when time and budget will allow. He confesses that being out with nature is always a spiritual experience, and, that getting close enough to capture a really great image, without disturbing or harassing an animal is a real challenge, and, when successful, a personal reward as well.
