Brian and Janet Stoppee

Brian & Janet Stoppee own M2 Media Studios, Inc., based in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, west of Washington, DC. Before buying a few rural acres, they owned studios in Richmond, Virginia and New York City. Brian has his bachelor’s degree from Lock Haven University, where he studied lighting and theatre design while doing photography, advertising, public relations, and producing shows for the Sloan Fine Arts Center. He majored in fine arts and minored in communications. Janet has her bachelor’s degree from the University of Delaware in Visual Communications where she studied advertising, photography, and illustration with some of the advertising community’s finest. They’ve been using computers long before the Macintosh was introduced and had version 1.0 of many of the software applications that have become a mainstay of image-making production. Brian’s first book, “The Photographer’s Guide to Using Light” has sold over 90,000 copies. With illustrations by Janet, it was the first project they worked on together. In 1995 they pioneered weather and the environment in the web and on the air at NBC, in Washington.
