Gene Shaner is a 43 year member of the Clayton Fire Company who has served a fire line officer and as a board member. My passion for photography started around 1980 when our daughters Mandi & Rose started doing things that needed to be documented…you know how kids are. I have traveled globally doing commercial photography for a leading optical company, shooting the sidelines of NFL games, the pits of NASCAR and inside the ropes of the PGA. Many of my photos have been used in optical magazines around the world and locally in books of the Delaware Bay crabbers by Jim Hanna. Some of the photos in our fire company files from the 80’s and early 90’s I took documenting our growth in Delaware. Gene and his wife Debbie will be celebrating their 40 anniversary in 2018.
