SAN ANTONIO â€" They pushed aside chairs and tables in a conference room at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland to set up a makeshift photo studio. [...] one of their own took stirring black-and-white portraits of every member of the 802nd Security Forces Squadron, each taking a turn under bright lights as Stacy Pearsall, 34, a retired Air Force combat photographer, squeezed a camera shutter release.

Story
Tagline
Disabled combat vet, founder of the Veterans Portrait Project, photographer, educator, lecturer, philanthropist & author of Shooter & PJ Guide
Introduction
Stacy L. Pearsall got her start as an Air Force photographer at the age of 17. During her time in the service, she traveled to over 41 countries, and attended S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. Now combat disabled and retired from military service, Pearsall continues to work worldwide as a freelance photographer, and is an author, educator, military consultant, public speaker and founder of the Veterans Portrait Project.

Pearsall was one of only two women to win NPPA's Military Photographer of the Year competition, and the only woman to have earned it twice. She's been honored as the Air Force Veteran of the Year by the Air Force Band and PBS, presented the Trojan Labor American Hero Award, honored with the Daughters of the American Revolution Margaret Cochran Corbin Award, lauded by the White House as a Champion of Change, and holds an honorary doctoral degree from The Citadel.

The release of her first photography book, Shooter: Combat from Behind the Camera, received worldwide praise as "A book of the highest levels in the annals of combat journalism." And her second book, A Photojournalist's Field Guide: In the Trenches with Combat Photographer Stacy Pearsall, is "A must have for every aspiring photographer out there, and even pros can pick up a few new tricks to help them become better photographers."
