about the artist

Stan Wan
Stan has always loved photography. His career started as the photographer for his high school yearbook, then he worked as a photographer at both the Daily Cal newspaper and the UC Berkeley yearbook. New York was next, as Stan decided to make photography his career. After apprenticing there for several years, Stan started his own career as a fashion photographer in Europe. He worked mainly for fashion magazines which included Giola, Grazia, Annabella, Ella, French Vogue, Depeche Mode, and Marie France. After 3 years in Paris, Stan returned to New York where he continued working with magazines. He has since worked for many titles including Glamour, Brides, Working Woman, Cosmopolitan, Self, Town and Country, Gotham and Hamptons.

Keeping up with technology, Stan made the switch to digital photography and has since done more advertising work with companies such as Sephora, L'Oreal, Avon, Bath and Body Works, C.O. Bigelow, The Laundress, and Fragrance.com. The use of color, texture, and natural elements keeps Stan's work unique. He loves the creative process and believes more in the democratic, combined talents approach rather than the "my way or the highway" path. Besides, it's more about having fun. And Stan's been having fun for a long time.
