This is Stacey.


Stacey Axelrod is a photographer, multimedia journalist, animal advocate, and volunteer in New York City. She is a proud graduate of the Photojournalism program at UNC-Chapel Hill. She shares her life with her husband Jon and three pets: Atlas (long cat), Lola (fat cat), and Escher (the dog).


Stacey loves animals.


As the NYC Photographer for Best Friends Animal Society, Stacey's lens is almost always covered in nose prints and fur. She discovered her passion for photographing animals while volunteering at the Orange County (N.C.) Animal Shelter and then served as the ASPCA photographer for 3.5 years.


Photography for Animal Rescues & Shelters

These days, a photo might be the only opportunity for an adoptable pet to make an impression. If you represent a NYC-area rescue organization, animal shelter, foster network, or other animal non-profit, please contact Stacey about discounted and pro bono photography services.

Stacey is a member of HeARTs Speak, a global community of photographers, writers, graphic designers, sculptors, painters, illustrators, shelter staff, rescue volunteers, and animal advocates working together to ensure that no shelter animal goes unseen.


Creative Advisor - Foster Dogs Steering Committee

Stacey is proud to support Foster Dogs Inc. with photography services and creative guidance as a member of the all-volunteer Steering Committee. Foster Dogs is the connection between people who want to help a shelter dog and the homeless dogs who need their help.
