For Jennifer Esken of Scranton, photography is a serious hobby. Starting in 2010, she began taking nature walks and taking photos. In 2012 she started showing her work locally. She has participated in 8 "First Friday Scranton" events at different venues, her works were displayed at Wayne Bank in 2014 for an entire year. She won 1st place in the Pennsylvania State Parks and Forest Foundation’s "Take Five" contest in 2012 and most recently placed second in the Pennsylvania Colors of Nature contest, also sponsored by the Pennsylvania State Parks and Forest Foundation, in September 2017. In 2013, she joined her first photography club, NEPA Shutterbugs. Participating in workshops and outings is where she fine tuned her skills. This year (2017) she became a founding member of a much smaller photography club, Focus NEPA. She loves taking creative pictures and sharing them with the world.
Jennifer attended Marywood University where she received a BS Degree in Accounting; she graduated in 1999. She is currently employed by Allied Services Integrated Health System in their Corporate office.
