About Stuart Hasson Studios
No matter how much I love what I do ( and I do LOVE being a photographer), none of the pictures or the great locations or the wonderful people that I get to meet would matter if I didn’t have such a great, supportive, beautiful, funny wife to share it all with. I fell in love with you the first second that I saw you and I’m still, after 22 wonderful learning years, Crazy-Nuts-Gaga for you. Thanks for helping me smile from the heart. I Love You.
My father Dave, taught me to say ‘Please’ and ‘Thank You’ because it’s important. As well as all of the things that make me feel like I’m a descent man, helping the world, one smile, one beautiful portrait at a time. Thanks Pop, I love you.
Last, but not lease, I have to thank God for giving me everything that I need, especially these perfect backgrounds with which to work.
About Stuart Hasson
I’ve been in love with photography since I was a kid. First camera; Kodak Instamatic X-15! You had to snap a 4-sided flash bulb to the top if you wanted flash. That memory makes me feel old. Google it. It got stolen on a vacation to Prince Edward Island, Canada when I was about 8 by a freaky guy with nine fingers… or so the story goes. But not before planting the seed that I could keep my memories of my life by having a camera handy. Like the time I was deep sea fishing off the coast of Maine and a Whale Shark (an extremely rare event in cold waters) swam by. I took 3 shots from the side of the boat to get the whole beast on film. Awesome lesson.
So why should YOU care about any of this? I don’t know. But I am happy to say that I’ve spent most of my life (50 years now) learning and loving photography. I bailed out of my first college after taking a photography class to attend photography school. Brooks Institute of Photography changed everything in my life. I graduated and met my wife Dee in 1988 and the rest is history.
Today, I’m a member of Professional Photographers of America (PPA), Georgia Professional Photographers Association (GPPA), South Eastern Professional Photographers Association (SEPPA), and Wedding & Portrait Photographers International (WPPI).

About Our Portraiture
With help of our subjects, we can create images that succeed in portraying character, creating mood, or expressing relationships. That is why we involve you in all aspects of planning your portrait – from determining your portrait needs and artistic desires, through the selection and completion of the final work. It is this patient and careful planning that helps to make our portraits so pleasing to our clients and so satisfying for us personally.
Our portrait sessions are never rushed. Above all, we want to create portraits that will portray you, your family, or your children as well as we possibly can. We are more than willing to take the time to do just that.
The photographic image is only the raw material that we use to create your finished portraits. The printed image is fully retouched, enhanced, and corrected with sensitively applied hand art work using dyes, oils, pastels, and pencils. Finally, the finished portrait is sealed in a lacquer glaze for permanence and protection. If you choose, the finished image can be embedded in artists’ canvas to add additional depth and texture.
Your portrait, then, is truly an art work of a very personal nature. As a decorative focal point of your home or office, it is a subtle reflection of your good taste and appreciation of fine workmanship, as well as a most appropriate expression of your personal style.
About Our Policies
Before we accept any assignment, we meet with our clients at our free, no obligation Initial Consultation. These meetings are usually scheduled in the evening, Tuesday thru Thursday. If you have special circumstances, we will try to accommodate your request.
If you believe that we can help fulfill your portrait needs, we decide on a date and time that works for you and us. A Prepaid Portrait Creation Fee is required to reserve the portrait session date.
The resulting images from your portrait session will be viewed in the studio, where they can be projected in the various sizes. At this time, we will help you determine which portrait sizes and finishes will be suit your needs.
Because portraits are a custom product, the amount of the order is required when the order is placed.
Portraits used as office wall decor are fully tax deductible. We will be happy to bill them to your company, should you indicate so.
Should you have any questions about our policies, or if we can be of any further help in planning your portrait, please call during regular office hours: Mon. – Fri. 9am – 5pm
