Today we’d like to introduce you to Stefan Schaal.
Stefan, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I grew up west of Los Angeles and have had an affinity to interesting visuals and aesthetic since I can remember and the desire to create. As a self-taught artist, I have been working internationally as a photographer since 2012 with a lot of my work commissioned in Europe. I specialize in fashion, conceptual and commercial work for commercial clients and magazines.
Has it been a smooth road?
It can be challenging to manage busy schedules, especially when traveling.
So, what should we be on the lookout for, what’s next in store for you?
I look forward to doing more high profile commercial and fashion work internationally, as well as expanding my team and network.
Let’s explore some of the challenges you’ve faced along the way. What was the most difficult part of your career so far?
This summer, tight deadlines meant falling to bed in Las Vegas after an international flight and waking up with just three hours of sleep later in the middle of the night to discuss revisions on an advertising project with clients in Europe. There’s really no way around that when people want to talk to you personally.
What about “Wow-moments” – any moments that stick out? Any moments when you felt like you had made it?
It’s nice to see your work getting published in larger and larger publications, now reaching six digits (e.g. commercial work I did for ‘The CEO Magazine’) and more.
