We are thrilled to have Nikon Ambassador Stacy Pearsall as a PhotoCon Keynote Speaker this year. Stacy L. Pearsall got her start as an Air Force photographer at the age of 17. During her time in service, she traveled to over 41 countries, and attended the Military Photojournalism Program at S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. During three combat tours, she earned the Bronze Star Medal and Air Force Commendation with Valor for combat actions in Iraq. Though disabled and retired from military service, Pearsall continues to work worldwide as an independent photographer, and is an author, educator, military consultant, public speaker and founder of the Veterans Portrait Project. She is a Nikon Ambassador, Manfrotto Ambassador and Ilford Master. Her work has been exhibited at The Woodruff Arts Center, The Pentagon and Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, the National Veterans Memorial and Museum among numerous other galleries and venues.
Stacy’s keynote will be an empowering presentation drawing upon the hardships she faced as a photographer, and woman, in combat. She’s documented some of the most dangerous battles of our time, has been injured in combat and survived to tell her story. More importantly, she lives to tell others’ stories. Hers is an amazing visual journey of personal and photographic growth. Not only do the images relate the story of the soldiers she’s documented, but also her own tale of friendships she made and tragically lost. You’ll learn how her path to recovery paved the road to her new mission in life, the Veterans Portrait Project.
Stacy will also be offering a private class on creating dynamic portraits! Learn more and register here.
We hope you’ll join us at PhotoCon 2019, our biggest year yet!
