We had the good fortune of connecting with Stephanie Tacy and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Stephanie, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
The most important factor behind my success is authenticity.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I first picked up a camera when I was 15,. I was dealing with a lot at the time and found mental balance behind the camera. After that, I just kept shooting.
Growing up I never thought that my art would bring me the opportunities it has from photographing an inmate on death row to going on tour. I have thoroughly enjoyed the people I have met and spaces I have been welcomed into. I have worked with such a diverse group of people from celebrities, professional athletes, store owners, politicians, musicians, tattoo artists, etc. as I have been selected to document moments in their history.
This past year I have been working on launching my own online publication, Savour Zine. It’s coverage will focus on food, music, art, different businesses, and travel. Savour Zine will be released to the public soon so stay tuned.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I am a big foodie.. Some of my favorite food spots in the city are Frank’s Pizza, BB’s Cafe, Churrascos, Plings, Uchi, Truth BBQ, The Breakfast Klub,
I would also recommend hitting an Astros game, attending a local car show, or savoring the moment at a concert at House of Blues or White Oak Music Hall.
