Throughout this mountain valley area there are many outstanding artists and photographers.  This month I had the privilege of visiting with Pam Trebes, Photographer, in her studio at 3215 Hill Crest Drive at the Hamilton Branch, Lake Almanor.

This year, Pam is celebrating 10 years as a photographer.  Starting with a 1.3 megapixel camera in 1999, she has come a long way!  Trebes is active in all parts of the photographic process.  She is a freelance photographer for events and scenics, does photo restoration, image capture, and graphic design.

Not only does her studio contain a gallery of her own framed photos, but she also has a large print center where she can make giclee’ prints from artists originals on whatever paper is desired.  This center will print up to 24″ X 100′.  She is also able to print amazing signs on indoor/outdoor self adhesive vinyl!  Pam can scan 35 mm slides or negatives, convert VCR tapes to DVD movies, scan hard copy images, download most disks, and photograph objects on a new green screen in her studio.

One of the more exciting projects she has going at the present is the creation and publishing of a beautiful photographic book encompassing Lassen, Plumas and Tehema Counties.

This prolific photographer may be found not only at her studio, but also at Art Around the Lake, Plumas Sierra County Fair, Almanor Art Show,  Second Fridays in Chester, and is now proudly showing at The Blue Goose Fine Art Gallery at 607 Main in Chester.  Watch for Pam Trebes 2010 Open Studio’s, check her out at or call 530-596-4166 for more information.
