Stacie Huckeba is an internationally recognized photographer and film producer. She is also writer and public speaker. She is a regular contributor for the Huffington Post and has a recurring column in the East Nashvillian. Her 30-year career has spanned decades and genres, she has photographed icons such as Billy Joel, Dolly Parton, Barry Gibb, Buddy Guy, Pearl Jam, Robert Plant, and countless others.Navigating a fiercely image conscious industry has allowed her to understand human insecurities better than most. However, it wasn’t the decades of working with others that drove her career to new heights- it was her own physical transformation. Over the course of four years Stacie lost 220 pounds, and as she puts it, “lost ten times that mentally and emotionally”. What she gained, however, had far more gravity than what she lost. She found the ability to tap into her own inner strength and beauty; no matter her dress size along the way. Stacie now has a message and the voice to pass that ability along to others.Her writing and speaking engagements are inspirational, educational, and deeply honest. They are also peppered with the same raw sarcasm and hilarious “real talk” that drove her to success. Her presentations encourage people to dig deeper, and provide a roadmap for maneuvering the image-obsessed culture we all exist in. Her photographs and video productions tap into the honest authenticity, humor and strength of each of the artists she works with.In Her Own Words – Courage – I had the courage to face my demons, destroy stereotypes, change my body in a drastic but spectacular way. And miraculously, in the process find not only smaller pants, but my life’s passion.Persistence – Through sheer persistence I have managed to live a truly authentic life. I’ve never wavered or been afraid to take on any challenge that crossed my path. I knew as a small child growing up in rural Texas that I wanted to become a famous photographer in the music industry. And I have never taken my eye off that prize; Whatever came my way.Inspire – I have been able to openly and fearlessly show the world my flaws, scars, downfalls, failures, disappointments, and pain. That ability to be honest has given me the amazing gift of being able to inspire other people to do the same. And to realize in the process how truly remarkable they are. It has shown me that every single person walking this earth is beautiful and has a story to tell. – It is impossible to express how much I love being able to help them tell it.Contact a speaker booking agent to check availability on Stacie Huckeba and other top speakers and celebrities.
