Stanley’s love of nature and art began at a very early age. He began painting in grade school, and his favorite subjects to paint were the landscapes that he found in scenic calendars. In college, he studied Fine Art and expanded his appreciation of art under the tutelage of renowned print master Dan Welden. His interest in photography came from carrying a point-n-shoot film camera on hikes and climbs in the mountains. When he moved to Northern California in 2002, he bought his first DSLR and became more serious about his hobby. In 2005, he received an honorable mention in the Banff Mountain Photography Competition, the only amateur to win, and that inspired him to work even harder on his photography skills.
Since then, he has received numerous awards and his work has appeared in venues around the globe. He is the author of several books, most recently The Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve, published by Sklyine Press. His e-book on Weather Forecasting for Photographers is a steady seller.
His goal as a photographer is to capture brief moments of time and freeze them for an eternity so that people can experience that special moment and realize the great joy that life brings to them. He is also passionate about preservation and conservation of our wild natural areas and hopes that his photography inspires people to take an active role in saving this great planet.
In 2016, he resigned from his day job, as a forecaster for the National Weather Service for 14 years, and he is now a full-time artist and photographer living in Flagstaff, Arizona. In the spring of 2019, he opened a gallery at the Hillside Shopping Center in Sedona, Arizona.
