NPN Staff Profile - Scott Lanz
Macro/Close-up Gallery Moderator

I have been a full time attorney with a law firm in Youngstown, Ohio for over thirty years, and an avid nature photographer even longer.

Like most members of NPN, my love for photography began as an offshoot of my love for nature and my desire to share what I see and experience while interacting with nature. In 2005, I started a nature photography business called LanzScape Photgraphy, Ltd. I display and sell nature photography prints and notecards at card stores and gift shops, as well as at the Butler Institute of American Art. In addition, I annually publish and sell the Mill Creek MetroParks Calendar. A portion of all calendar sales, which have averaged over 1700 per year for the last five years, is donated annually to benefit Fellows Riverside Gardens, a free public gardens owned and operated by Mill Creek MetroParks. I recently completed my second three year term on the board of the Friends of Fellows Riverside Gardens.

A lifelong resident of the Youngstown area, I currently live in Boardman, Ohio with my wife, Arlene. You can view my photography at
