Pictures so life-like it seems you might reach out and touch the elk or almost smell the dust of the rodeo arena. Great action shots are a trademark of Rebecca (Becky) Pagnotta, of Brownie Photography, and are consistently winning impressive awards. Deer, elk, wild horses, soaring hawks and eagles, bucking horses, graduating students, children at play, breathtaking weddings, stunning landscapes, you can find them all on Pagnotta’s FaceBook Page. You can also find many of these shots on the and Women in Photography award pages. Pagnotta has been winning awards for several years, but in 2019-2020 she seems to be consistently in the winner’s circle.

In 1999, Pagnotta was a newlywed searching for a job that interested her. She looked around at the beautiful area she was living in with the abundant wildlife, and her artistic side came to life. Carpal tunnel making her unable to do the drawing and painting that she had in the past, Pagnotta bought a Canon camera and taught herself photography. At that time, cameras used film and Pagnotta not only taught herself to take stunning photos, she learned to edit her own photos. When digital photography became an option, she moved into it.

Pagnotta said, “I so love taking pictures. Once in a while I get in a rut and stop taking pictures for a while, but then I just have to get back to taking pictures.”

Pagnotta named her business Brownie Photography after her mother (Brownie was her mother’s nickname), who inspired and nudged her. Pagnotta shared what her mother told her, “You can’t lose any moments in your life because you never know when it is your last. Live your life like it is your last moment. If you want to do it, just go for your dreams and do it.” A month after sharing this wisdom with her daughter, she passed away, but the encouragement lingers.
