Quick question, "Which is more challenging and fun – developing a Growth Mindset and pushing your potential and curiosity to the max ... or experiencing the perceived comfort of staying in one place, with one mindset, for the rest of your life?"
I know we both know the answer.
For myself, this means that life is forever changing, life can be unpredictable, and also life can be so beautiful. And that is what I adore about this world, all of the wonderful potential that can be realized when we just try.
This is the mindset, the backdrop if you will, from which I launched my own photography journey.
I saw the world and all its abundance of grace and beauty ... and I wanted to capture it all. I also wanted to celebrate what other people needed to memorialize in their own life's odyssey, those precious moments in life that can pass us all by if we are not too careful.
Life is a collection of moments. Capture them as they happen.
So at the start of my personal photo journey, I took a ton of great photography courses (fantastic when also coupled with my years of teaching photo editing with Photoshop and earning an Adobe ACE Certification in Photoshop), met with a few professionals, and I learned everything that I could about photography. As I learned and practiced, my unique style developed and emerged.
After years of hearing “who's the photographer behind this,” I realized it was time to go big, and Shaun Stockton Photography was born!
Today, I am an award-winning, published, natural light portrait photographer. My photography has been featured on the cover of Paris Chic Magazine and highlighted in spreads for Model Source Magazine, Kid Model MagazineIt Girl Model Magazine, Young Model Magazine, Iconic Child Magazine,Through the Lens: Fashion Magazine, Letiel Magazine and Lipstick Magazine publications. My photos have also been used for the Marc Defang Runway Featured Models and Child Model Magazine.
I have also had images chosen by NPR 88.5 WFDD as the Photo Of The Week for 2019 and 2020. Click HERE to see the photos.
I proudly had the 2019 winning NPR image featured in a SECCA (The Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art in Winston-Salem, NC) museum gallery. My art may not have been displayed next to an Ansel Adams photo, but I still would have gladly showed it off to you like the honored mamma that I was.
My images have been associated with many ads in Forsyth Bride Magazine and in articles for Forsyth Woman Magazine. I have also won photography awards with Senior Year Magazine, Seniorologie, and Senior Muse. I also enjoy working with the reigning Beauty Queen Champion of Miss Davie Teen USA 2019, Miss Davie Teen 2020, and Miss Piedmont Triad Teen USA pageants.
