Now living the life of a full-time photographer Stan continues to push his boundaries in the creative arts. With his infectious passion for adventure, Stan has adapted a nature journalist approach to his art.

He seeks to move people and encourages them to get out there and experience what this world has to offer and to appreciate the time we have here on planet Earth.
Versed in a variety of photo and video techniques, Stan works with many clients in making their artistic visions become a reality. Stan is also an educator at heart leading workshops to help spark that fire for photography and filmmaking on to the next.
