About Stuart Hasson Studios
Photography has always been a part of me.
I traveled a lot in my youth. I’ll always remember the joy that came from opening that packet of pictures from my last adventure. Seeing the great place that I’d just been to. Seeing the faces of the people I’d just met, friends and family that I’d be with… it was always so much fun being able to revisit those places and remember those people. As I grew up, that belief in photography grew, also.
In college, when I had a camera in my hand, I had a purpose, a vision, and goals. I’d ask all kinds of people to pose for me. Anyone. I loved creating; starting with a vision, using the camera as step one, then going into the darkroom to complete the vision. It was magic!
I attended Brooks Institute of Photography. I earned a scholarship there and graduated in 1988 with a B.A. in Media / Portraiture. That was a wonderful experience. Happy I survived!
I moved to GA after graduation and began my career. I’m a proud member of and Counselor for Professional Photographers of America. I’ve earned the Certified Professional Photographers certificate. I am on the Board of Directors of the Georgia Professional Photographers Association. I donate my time and skills to many cause-oriented organizations, including Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep. That work is important.
I absolutely love the feeling when someone sees their portrait for the first time; smiles,… then cries. That’s a great feeling.
Photography is my way of capturing those moments for folks just like you to remember for a lifetime. When memory fails us, photographs are there to bring all of the emotions, experiences, and joys of life back to us.
It’s an incredible honor to be able to document moments in people’s lives. Over the past 33 years, I’ve been able to give the gift of captured moments to so many amazing people. I’d love to do that for you, too.
