The Legacy of Stan Stearns
As appropriate for a photographer of his stature, the obituary of Mr. Stan Stearns appeared in nearly 200 newspapers and news broadcasts worldwide after he passed away on March 2, 2012.
After he left UPI, Stearns returned to his hometown of Annapolis, Maryland and opened a downtown portrait studio. He photographed many well-known celebrities and politicians as well as prominent local residents, right up until his last days.
A couple of years before he passed, Stearns asked his friend and fellow Annapolis photographer Dave Anderson to carry on his business should he ever not be able to himself. Having a similar style and talent, Anderson agreed to take on this task if necessary. All too soon Anderson found himself carrying on the famous legacy and continues to serve Stan’s clients with the quality and service for which Stan was noted. Anderson now owns and maintains Stan’s files and remaining body of work.
