Old Main Frame Shop & Gallery are proud to announce that we are carrying photographer Jim Valent’s photographs! Some of you have already bought some of his splendid images but for those who haven’t – stop by and have a look at Jim’s amazing photography! Jim really captures the beauty of Campus and Happy Valley. To get to know more about Jim, we’ve included his bio and some samples of his images.

Jim’s Bio: I was raised on a dairy farm in Salamanca NY and now call State College PA my home.  Although I still work in the agricultural field, I’ve been exploring photography since 2008 when my wife thought that I should find a hobby that wasn’t a sport (and a trip to the orthopedic).  I still have a lot to learn but it wasn’t until attending my first Canon Workshop in OCT-2015 that I finally began to understand the camera and using natural light in a more dramatic perspective.   I envy the creativity of those that are photoshop saavy but I take pride in capturing images in their natural state.

Photographing my alma mater Penn State (’93 BS AgEcon) not only captures memories for myself but also provides a way to share the beauty of a campus that shaped many of us.  Throughout the growth and changes, the iconic sites can always rekindle a memory, a laugh and even a friendship.  We Are…
