About Sam

I grew up in Neenah, WI and have been a photographer for over 15 years.  I earned an Associates Degree in Applied Arts Photography from MATC in Madison and I am an active member of PPA (Professional Photographers of America), WPPA (Wisconsin Professional Photographers Association), and also SCPA (South Central Photographers Association).   

Shortly after graduating, we opened Pinnacle Photography and Portraits in Neenah, WI.  Over the years, our business has evolved and now operates as Scanlan Studios - with a division called Pinnacle Group Photography. 

I grew up in the Fox Valley area and I definitely know the area well so I am able to offer you unique locations for your shoot (especially high school seniors who love to stand out ;) )! 

I am a full-time photographer all year long!  During the week, you may see me photographing on location with families, high school seniors, business/commercial shoots or local schools, churches and sporting events.  On weekends, you will find me shooting class or family reunions, weddings or out in the community with my family.   

I am blessed with a lovely wife, Jyll, and a two daughters - Margo, age 10 and Milly, age 7.  They are full of energy and keep us laughing with their great personalities.

I love to capture the personalities of my clients and go above and beyond to do so! I have been known to climb rocks to catch active boys in action or stand in the water to get the best shots of a senior or wedding party.  I have fun doing what I do and I want you to have fun too and to be thrilled with the results of your shoot!  I appreciate you placing your trust in me to help capture heirloom quality memories. I work closely with other local businesses in the community to help everyone succeed and bring forth economic growth in the Fox Valley.

Photography and soccer are my passions!  I look forward to working with you to bring out your best!
