Behind the Scenes with Retired Combat Photographer Stacy Pearsall and the Veterans Portrait Project

In the US, today is Veterans Day. For those in the British Commonwealth, today is Remembrance Day (also referred to as Poppy Day). It seemed right to end this day with a post that would, in some small way, honor the men and women who serve in the armed forces across the globe.

To that end, we have for you a short, inspirational video by B&H featuring retired combat photographer Stacy Pearsall.

In the video, the B&H Prospectives team takes a behind-the-scenes look at the retired Staff Sergeant and combat photographer’s own Veterans Portrait Project.

Pearsall shares her story while giving us small glimpses into the lives of the veterans she captures in her photographs. Whether for the process, the inspiration, or the stories within, give the video a watch… and don’t forget to thank a veteran today.
