Photography has been a great interest of Stewart’s since his days as a yearbook photographer in high school. This early experience gave Stewart a strong working knowledge of the camera and prompted him to pursue further education in the field. Modesto Junior College provided a deeper level of artistry through their photography program. This step along the journey moved him closer to the dream of becoming a professional artistic photographer.

Stewart attended Brook’s Institute in Santa Barbara with emphasis on commercial and technical studies. He left from there with a greater understanding of both camera and lighting techniques. This knowledge allowed Stewart to capture on film what he was seeing in his mind’s eye with greater depth and accuracy. After he finished Brook’s, he continued his education through West Coast School of Photography, Professional Photograhers of California, and Professional Photographers of America, (P.P.A.). In 1997, Stewart became one of the first P.P.A. Certified Professional Photographers in Merced County. It is his personal philosophy that a good photographer never stops learning!
