Hi, I'm Stephen Young.

I see things that other people can’t see.
That’s my superpower.
I see the best that you are - and I do whatever it takes to capture that for the world to see.
If this is what you want, I’m your guy.

I love capturing stunning images of the hotels and restaurants which encourage the chance encounters that enrich our lives — and the exceptionally crafted and curated homes where we find serenity and come together with those we love.

My portfolio of residential and commercial interiors photos for hotels, resorts, designers and retail was the reason in 2012 Google telephoned me to become one of their top 10 photographers worldwide. Every day I make the world’s 4th largest company look great and I will do the same for you and your special place.

Before viewing image portfolios, please ensure your device brightness is at least 90%


A few years ago you could get by with a handful of good images for your printed brochures.
Today you have an ongoing need for stunning images.
Multiple websites, your sales and marketing team, and social media require the most compelling images possible within your budget.

If you are located within my insanely beautiful home city of New Orleans, you can have gorgeous images after just a 1-hr, 1/2-day, or full day shoot(s).
I may show up for the shoot riding my co-conspirator Triumph motorcycle which looks great parked in driveways and in front of swanky urban hotels.

Beyond New Orleans I and my team will arrive a couple of days prior to our scheduled shoot.
We will get to know your staff and prepare the property for our multiple days of photography.
For hotel shoots we will stay onsite and observe how your guests interact and enjoy your property as we photograph your exterior, hotel lobby, guest rooms and bathrooms, restaurant, bar and lounge, meeting spaces, ballroom, business center, fitness center, pool, spa, and recreational spaces.

We also love staying for a few days after our shoot to capture stunning destination photos and films of the neighborhoods surrounding your property.
We can explore for a few days and provide months worth of social media images and video clips.

Within 2 weeks after our shoot you will receive a link to review your beautiful new images.
Upon approval and payment of our balance invoice you can immediately download and begin sharing
all the images. You will own lifetime full usage rights to the property photos.
The next time we chat will be to hang out or to plan another gorgeous photo shoot.

Let’s create stunning images of your properties - somewhere between $450 and $45K
