Banning Stuckey, born Banno Stookaylo, is a 22-year-old new graduate of Full Sail, a school in Winter Park, Florida. Although his main emphasis is on photowork and photo compositing, he also holds a background in 3D, using both Alias's Maya and Autodesk Media and Entertainment's 3ds Max. A longtime user of Adobe Photoshop, Stuckey adopted image creation and editing application with the release of Version 3. Since that time, he has developed a passion for compositing photos, combining images into one another and making them look real. In the year 2003, Stuckey began his pursuit of a degree in digital media. While in school, he learned how to create 3D artwork. The current graduate of Full Sail is currently looking for a job in Pittsburg, Kansas, where he has lived most of his life.
