Kori Stanton first learned the art of dark room photography at the age of 11 at a Summer Enrichment program offered at the University of Northern Colorado.
By the time she was 15 she was interning at a local photo studio in her hometown Grand Junction, CO. It was there that Kori fell in love with photographing people and telling their story. In 2006 Stanton packed up her life in Colorado and moved to LA to pursue her photography even deeper.For the last five years she has worked as a freelance photographer based in Los Angeles. Working with such clients as: Smashbox, Interscope, Hautelook, Latino Magazine, Pricegrabber & Gravity.
In May 2010 Stanton put out a casting for dog portraits. A fun, personal project, turned into a collection of great dog portraits that evolved into a coffee-table book. Her first book “Dog Portraits” by Kori Stanton was featured and sold at G2 Gallery on Abbot Kinney in Venice, CA. “I LOVE dogs! I love animals in general. Dogs have such amazing personalities and to be able to connect with them and capture their expression is pretty amazing.” – Stanton said after her first dog shoot.
Stanton has studied under Amy Arbus and last August (2010) was awarded a scholarship to attend an intensive workshop at Anderson Ranch taught by celebrity portrait photog Greg Gorman.
“My purpose as a photographer is to evoke and capture my subject’s true personality through the image. I was put here on earth to help keep the arts alive. I am so thrilled to teach and enable young people. I want to leave my mark as an inspiring artist.” – Kori Stanton
