Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, United States

I began my photography career as a young Airman in 1985 at the Little Rock Air Force Base in Arkansas. The following year, I won a scholarship to study photojournalism at Syracuse University and became one of the lowest ranking and least tenured Airmen to ever receive this prestigious scholarship. Upon the successful completion of the military photojournalism program, I was named Combat Photographer and stationed at Norton Air Force Base in Southern California. My stint in the Air Force had a great impact on me as it provided the opportunity to explore some of the world as a young man. In 1991, Alan Wycheck Photography was established as a venture into the world of commercial photography, and is now based in central Pennsylvania. My photography is represented by Getty Images and The Associated Press.
I've been a professional photographer all of my adult life and I still love it. I enjoy all types and styles of photography. I enjoy portraiture because it has given me the opportunity to meet some amazing characters throughout my life. I also enjoy architecture very much. I look at architecture as sculptures in which we live, work and play.
In addition to photography, I make art. I will be posting my new creations as they happen.
