He is now a highly-regarded photographer/filmmaker, bringing together his strategic advertising experience with his fabulous eye for composition, to make him quite the unique image maker.
His areas of focus are still-life and portraiture; but his unique aesthetic, which has a strong sense of the minimal and the graphic, also translates to his lifestyle photography.
“I see my task as bringing a calm simplicity to a world over-burdened with images. Everything in the frame is there for a reason, or it shouldn’t be there.”
Stuey works internationally, but is based in his peaceful studio in a converted mill on the outskirts of Halifax, West Yorkshire. 
“I use filmmaking compositional techniques to direct the eye across the frame to imbue the still image with movement, or narrative, or emotion. It may not look like it, but a lot of work goes into the reduction of visual stimuli in an image. I’m in search of a result that has a potency, a concentrated feel.”
