Film Makers Who have Grit

We believe in the power of story. Whether that story takes the form of the printed word, the read-aloud narrative, or images projected on a screen, we believe that beautiful stories have the power to change our lives.

Check out some of our favorite Southern film directors.


STEPHEN DeVRIES

Stephen has been a photographer since 2008, but that wasn’t always the plan. After a stint as a veterinary science major (he loves animals and comes from a family of scientists), he made the switch to art and first picked up a camera while incorporating photos in a series of encaustic paintings. There was something about the combination of art and technical detail that clicked, and it’s been his passion ever since.

With a love for the details of lighting and composition, Stephen thrives when working with a team of creatives on a food or still life shoot. And he also loves the spontaneity of being on the road for a travel shoot, capturing the unique character of an interesting place.
