About Charleston Photographer Jason Stemple
I grew up in Hatfield, Massachusetts, a small farming town in the Connecticut River Valley. My father, David Stemple was a computer science professor and chairman of the department at U Mass Amherst. My mother, Jane Yolen is an author of well over 200 books and passed her writing gene on to my siblings - my sister Heidi is an author and my brother Adam is a novelist and musician.
I became interested in photography in high school, and entered an early placement program at Greenfield Community College where I studied graphic design and photography. My other passion was skiing, so once I had received my associates degree from GCC I decided to continue my education and quest for better skiing at Western State College of Colorado. There, I majored in business and continued to build a photographic body of work in my new majestic surroundings.
In my last year at Western State my mother and I began to collaborate on book projects. First was a small autobiography called A Letter From Phoenix Farm, then came Water Music, Once upon Ice, Snow Snow, House House, Color Me a Rhyme, Wild Wings (winner of the 2006 National Outdoor Book Award), Horizons, Least Things, Fine Feathered Friends, Count Me a Rhyme, Shape Me A Rhyme, A Mirror To Nature (winner of the 2009 John Burrough’s Award) and An Egret’s Day.
I now live with my wife, Joanne, and twin girls, Caroline and Amelia, in Charleston, South Carolina and work as a freelance photographer. In between shooting for commercial clients I am working on several different book projects with and without my mother and am continuing to build a large supply of stock photography ( www.CharlestonStockPhotography.com.).
