Stu Hall has lived in Vermont since 1966. His greatest influence for photography came from his father, Bob Hall, another avid photographer. With his dad’s help Stu learned the darkroom basics of film developing and printing in black and white.
Stu’s first camera was a Kodak Brownie camera (127 film) which he used to learn black and white photography. From that time he moved on to 35 mm photography where he worked in black and white and color. For the past 17 years Stu has been shooting with digital photography and loves it.
After moving to West Bolton 19 years ago he was intrigued with the snowflake photographs that were taken by Wilson “Snowflake” Bentley many years ago in Jericho, Vermont. More information on “Snowflake” Bentley can be found at the official website www.snowflakebentley.com.
Several years later, after many unsuccessful attempts, Stu finally perfected a technique that allows him to photograph snowflakes on a board covered with black velvet. Stu has had his work exhibited in various Art Galleries, The Champlain Valley Expo, several retail stores, and local Libraries. Stu has participated in Open Studio Weekend and many Art and Craft shows in the northern part of the state.
