Taylor Stoecklein grew up learning to love the ways of the western lifestyle. Having assisted his father on photo shoots from the age of 15, Taylor developed a passion for photography and capturing the American West through his own eyes. He combined his enthusiasm of the western way of life with his education by competing in rodeos throughout college while attending California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, CA. Taylor then continued his education at Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, CA where he truly refined his photography skills. Taylor now travels the country taking photos for major companies.
Stoecklein Photography houses an extensive stock collection encompassing both lifestyle and western images. In addition, the Stoecklein family owns a gallery of fine art prints, including limited hand signed prints, and western memorabilia in Ketchum, Idaho. Stoecklein Publishing produces an annual line of western calendars and datebooks as well as a series of western coffee-table books.
