Jeff Stark was born in Houston and grew up out in Sugar Land. His dad is an artist who has been painting most of his life so his love for art and design started at a young age. His first dream was to become an architect, but that path guided him towards a degree in graphic design with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Houston. With a career in graphic design, it was an easy transition into photography which has become his creative outlet. His passion for photography started with capturing and documenting his travels back in 2009 on a trip to Italy. As an artist his photography provides the audience with a unique view into the environments, spaces, and the landscapes that surround him.
