Photographers Bio

Edwin Shaw has been involved with the performing arts his entire life. Growing up a son of a professional dance choreographer, he trained under various instructors and schools in the USA, Taiwan and China in Chinese Traditional Dances, Wushu, Dragon Dance and Lion Dance. He has performed, choreographed and instructed several clinics both locally and nationally. As a performer with the OCA-Pittsburgh Chapter and OCA Youth for over 15 years and 10 years as an instructor, Edwin is still involved with the Cultural and Artistic Communities of Pittsburgh.

After graduating the Pennsylvania State University - University Park, Edwin traveled to Asia for a position in Supply Chain Management, he used this opportunity to document his travels across Asia through his favorite medium, a lens...

Shortly after returning home, he continued his career into finance where he worked for Countrywide Financial and then later Bank of America for another 2 years. After waking up one too many days to a tie, numbers and 9-5 job, Edwin resigned and began to pursue his passion in photography full time.

Edwin has been working for Pageant Associates since 2003, he began as a volunteer in the office, learning the pageant business from the ground up, over the years his role and responsibilities increased... Those have been a fun 7 years learning the world of pageantry through some of the best colleagues/friends inside and out of the business, a relationship that continues on today .

In the spring of 2010, Edwin Shaw Photography was established.
