Meet Stewart Royall studio number 8 on our tour. Not only is Stewart a native of Alleghany County, he is 5th generation! Stewart has loved photography from a very young age and knows this county like the back of his hand. From his portraits to his landscapes, Stewart instinctively captures the stunning scenery of the Blue Ridge Parkway, the New River, and the many breathtaking waterfalls that lay hidden in this landscape. Leave it to him to find the perfect location where the lighting is just right, the backdrop fits the occasion, and perhaps some local folklore to add to the story.
Stewart’s studio goes beyond four walls. He is always on the go with bridal / wedding photo shoots, sports team action shots, senior portraits, family memories and more. If it’s not a human event, it’s mother nature that keeps him busy! Each season in these mountains creates a new canvas for his work like the vibrant colors of fall foliage and the quiet solitude of a winter storm. Studio Roxie is located just off of Main Street in Sparta and it’s open year-round. Visit Stewart‘s studio and find a piece of Alleghany beauty to hang in your home.
“Don’t forget to turn around…good photos behind you.”- Stewart
