The Stoecklein Family
After shooting photos for some of the largest companies in the world, David Stoecklein decided to use his talent to show people what he had grown to respect and love: the culture of the American West. David’s fascination with the ranching heritage of the West led him to befriend, and subsequently photograph, the men and women still breathing life into the mythical figure of the cowboy. David’s passion for preserving the traditions and beliefs of the country’s honest, hard-working cowboys and cowgirls gradually earned him their respect. With that respect came an open invitation to share in their lives, and the great responsibility to honor their trust.
David has captured the Spirit of the West for generations to come. He has preserved millions of images, produced many books, calendars, prints and cards. Now David’s son, Drew, is proud to continue to share his father’s legacy.
Drew Stoecklein chose a path that has led him around the globe on assignments for commercial and editorial clients, both as a cinematographer/photographer and as a sponsored athlete. Spending time behind the lens and also in front of the camera has given him a valuable perspective for capturing unique and eye-catching images. Drew’s first book, Seasons of the Steelhead, produced in 2011, received the coveted Best Book of the Year Award from the American Fly Fishing Trade Association. Drew’s biggest thrill is delivering unforgettable imagery to all of his clients.
