Your Bio

Welcome to Keystone State Fire Photos!

Throughout the galleries on the site you will find apparatus from across the state of Pennsylvania, along with a few other states including Maryland, Delaware, Florida and the District of Columbia. Hope everyone enjoys.

A quick intro about me:

Patrick Shoop, Jr.

I'm a career Firefighter in the Anne Arundel County Fire Department in Maryland. I currently live in Central Pennsylvania, but am looking to move closer to the Maryland line. On my off time I enjoy taking photos of fire apparatus. Most of my photography time is spent in PA and MD, but on occasion I venture into the states of DE, NY, NJ, VA, FL, and the District of Columbia. I'm a current member of the Central PA Fire Buff Association. I'm a Volunteer FireFighter with United Fire & Rescue in Lewistown. My work has been scene in numerous locations, including 1st Responder Newspaper, Different Fire Related Books, and Choice Fire Trading cards. I also submit my work to be used in the Seagrave Fire Apparatus Calendar.
