Hi, I'm Stephen. I passionately believe every person is stunning and beautiful and (most) every business has a fascinating story to tell.
I prove it with my Pro Photography, Google Maps 360 Tours, Social Media Films, and Fierce Web Content.

But my real superpower is listening. And asking "why?"
My three favorite words are "tell me more."
This is how beautiful photos and films are born.

Following is what I do for hotels, restaurants, resorts, homes, and businesses & other cool projects in just one week onsite.
If you are in or near New Orleans, we can also make magic by the day or by the hour.

Stephen Young is the pro hotel, restaurant, and interiors photographer and filmmaker hand-picked by Google in 2012 to be one of the tech giant's first independent inside business photographers in North America.

Stephen will travel to your property and live onsite for one week to capture your story in compelling hi-res photography, 360° Google Maps virtual tours, and social media photos and videos.
