Photography by Jim Schwabel


Photography started as a hobby for Jim Schwabel while in the military with a second hand camera, black & white film and a photo lab on his military base.  He kept the hobby after the military learning all he could about photography.  Together with his wife he enjoyed travel and photographing his adventures and began selling his photos for editorial and advertising uses. Jim’s photos have now appeared in magazine articles, calendars, textbooks and many other publications as well as being used in advertisements for companies large and small.  Jim has also been successfully selling his scenic/travel work at art shows for the past eight years winning numerous awards at the shows.

With the changes in cameras from film to digital and  with the computer, Jim now has new tools for creating one of a kind images for fine art prints.  His interest in cars and the new digital tools have led to his latest images of classic cars, hot rods and race cars.
