Los Angeles–based still and motion photographer Stan Evans has a deep passion for portrait, lifestyle, athletic, and motorized imagery—probably in that order. He’s a uniquely creative problem solver who has helped clients like American Express, Cocoa Cola, Columbia, HBO, FOX/Searchlight, Home Depot, Red Bull, and Vans tell their stories. And celebrities from Will and Jada Pinkett Smith to Lucy Liu love his easy working style and his evocative, original take on portraiture.
Growing up as a minority and a military brat, Stan learned early on how to view the world from multiple perspectives. As the host of Social Studies Show, a video podcast that explores the relationship between advertising and activism, he’s enjoyed broadening those perspectives even further, as he crisscrosses the country meeting with people at companies and marketing agencies to learn how they are marketing with accountability, multiculturalism, and environmentalism in mind.
