Stacy L. Pearsall got her start as an Air Force photographer at the age of 17. During her time in service, she traveled to over 41 countries, and attended the Military Photojournalism Program at S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. During three combat tours, she earned the Bronze Star Medal and Air Force Commendation with Valor for combat actions in Iraq.

Though combat disabled and retired from military service, Pearsall continues to work worldwide as an independent photographer, and is an author, educator, military consultant, public speaker and founder of the Veterans Portrait Project.

The PDN Personal Project” award-winning series Veterans Portrait Project (VPP) began while Pearsall rehabilitated from combat injuries sustained in Iraq. Spending hours in VA waiting rooms surrounded by veterans from every generation and branch of service, Pearsall was compelled to honor and thank them in the only way she knows how, photography. She’s traveled coast to coast with the VPP and has documented roughly 6,000 veterans in over 100+ engagements. In 2015, Pearsall assisted in the establishment of the Veterans Portrait Project: UK where former British Army combat engineer and photographer, Stephen Porteous, utilizes her concept for British veterans.

Between her photography, teaching and speaking engagements, Pearsall completed her first photography book, Shooter: Combat from Behind the Camera, which received worldwide praise as "A book of the highest levels in the annals of combat journalism." And her second book, A Photojournalist's Field Guide: In the Trenches with Combat Photographer Stacy Pearsall, is "A must have for every aspiring photographer out there, and even pros can pick up a few new tricks to help them become better photographers."

Andrea Francolini is an photographer who is best known for his amazing photographs of yachting and sailing. His work has been in demand in both the editorial and commercial world.

My-First-School is a personal project for Francolini, who has a keen interest in Pakistan's diverse society. Away from the struggles reported by the media, Pakistani people are open, friendly and family-oriented but face serious challenges in everyday life just to make ends meet. Children can be affected more than most.


Education, as expected, can take second place to survival in these circumstances, and Andrea's goal is to help these families send their children to school for a basic education which then allows them to get more out of life - something we take for granted in western society.

With your donations, Andrea returns to northern Pakistan on a yearly basis to buy schooling equipment, like notebooks, pencils and erasers, which will benefit the children - especially girls who can find it harder to attend school. In 2013 My First School has started to help build classrooms in 3 existing schools in order to increase their capacities. Again, in 2013 a sponsorship program, which guarantees schooling for 5 years, has also been set up. At this stage 8 students are already part of the program and hopefully each year more will be added to the list.
