Standa Merhout New York photographers

Born in the former Czechoslovakia, Stanislav Merhout is influenced by the artistic atmosphere that radiates from across Europe. Stanislav's passion for photography developed at a young age and he opened his first studio at 25. His natural talent contributed to the explosive start of his career. 

Over a decade ago, Stanislav started as an assistant in New York at Pier 59. He later returned to Prague in 2000 to build his career as an independent fashion and advertising photographer. However, the Czech Republic quickly became too small for his ambitions, and in 2001 he signed a contract with Elle magazine and continues to grace their pages and covers with his work.

After winning the 2004 Canon Competition in Cayenne Amsterdam, his most recent work has involved collaborations with Harper's Bazaar Arabia, Harper's Bazaar Latino America, and Dolce Vita Magazine.

Now based in Brooklyn, he uses his travel experiences and his love for music and movies from the 1970's for his constant, evolving inspirations.

Stanislav also shoots for the following brands: Chanel, L'Oreal, Oriflame, Avon, Adidas, Nike, and YKK etc.
