The F STOP is an online magazine featuring the work of top advertising, editorial, and fine art photographers. Published monthly, each issue explores the work of one professional photographer. Articles combine an in-depth interview with a comprehensive behind-the-scenes deconstruction of the process of creating one powerful image from the photographer’s recent portfolio.

The F STOP is edited and published by photographer Zack Seckler. Zack’s professional development involved a variety of learning environments, mentors, and self-teaching experiences. These inspired him to create The F STOP as a medium for professional and serious amateur photographers to form a virtual community where like-minded people can share information about their art, their vision, and the technical craft of producing compelling images.
