About this video

What does a combat photographer outside of combat? After getting injured and retiring from the U.S. military, Stacy Pearsall put her camera in the hands of other veterans to challenge misconceptions of what it means to be a veteran.


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. During three combat tours, she earned the Bronze Star Medal and Commendation with Valor for heroic actions under fire. Combat disabled and retired from the military, Pearsall works worldwide as a freelance photographer and educator, and is the Owner and Director of the Charleston Center for Photography.
