My name is Christie Stockstill. I am an Austin, Texas based artist specializing in family journalism, creative portraiture and fine art photography. I've been working as a portrait photographer since I stopped teaching high school in 2008. I am married to a very understanding man, who often finds himself in front of my camera, and we have two young boys, who, not always as willingly, find themselves in front of my camera.
I do quite a bit of portrait work, and my portrait work has grown into my fine art work. My photographs are often quiet and organic, mysterious and earthy, but may also be full of energy and fantasy, playfulness and humor. Whatever the case, I want my photographs to provoke a visceral reaction - to cause the viewer to smile, laugh, swear, tear up, gasp, or forget to breathe.
My workshops range from camera fundamentals to turning photos into art pieces. I am also available for mentoring, speaking and teaching. I love to speak to and with children of all ages.
