As a self-proclaimed ‘Visual Storyteller’, Edrece Stansberry has been featured in publications such as Pattern Magazine, National Geographic and Sidepiece Magazine for his photographs. While working as an Independent Contractor on freelance projects, he has been able to execute on a vast amount of projects centralized in Art/Creative Direction and Photography for companies such as Amazon and Finish Line. As a meticulous creator, these projects have led him to solely concentrate on storytelling through Media, Print, and Digital Advertising to not only build the value of clients but help them develop a distinctive brand within a rapidly growing media focused marketplace. With his divine purpose being to express himself in the mediums of writing and photography, he plans to be a guide of spiritual well being through art as he continues to create.
What I love most about photography and creating stories is the fact that it is for people. I love evoking different emotions for people through whatever project I am working on; whether it is a commercial project for the YMCA or a fashion shoot for Vogue. I love being able to not only express my vision to the world but impactful people by showing them something different than their eye has ever seen.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have completed multiple forms of shoots from event, fashion, music, conceptual, and commercial photography. I made them special by brining enthusiasm, optimism, and passion. It is a given that you have to be creative within the field of arts but what most people forget about is just to be themselves and provide an awesome experience to the person you are photographing. When you are able to exert that energy, the subject does the same in return which opens up the light of creativity.
