What inspired the start of “Stock Studio”?
I had been blogging for a bit and began doing trade for shoots. Where I would get free products in exchange for a few photos. Eventually, I thought: what if brands could use the content on a consistent basis as opposed to exchanging a few photos at a time? In 2028 I began to send emails or messages to brands with my packages and it was well revived! From there I grew and began shooting brands with creative photographers to produce original content.
What has been the biggest challenge of running a brand like ” Stock Studio “?
The biggest challenge for running this type of service has been having brands see the importance of investing in the business for long-term growth. It’s more than just a pretty picture. Photos are a key component of a brand story and need to represent what the brand is all about.

What does being “Pretty and Black Owned” mean to you?
