Stephen Wayda is an internationally published photographer best known for his demonstrative images of celebrities and women.
Wayda’s photographs of A-list celebrities, pop-culture icons, supermodels, musicians and the “girl next door” are a depiction of personality, sensuality, sexuality, femininity or masculinity, and, most of all, attitude. As a contributing photographer for Playboy magazine, Playboy Publisher Hugh M. Hefner stated: “Stephen Wayda has shared the dream for some thirty years. From an inauspicious start, he has become the most published photographer in the history of Playboy. His iconic images have helped change the way the world looks at women, and the way women look at the world. His influence on photography cannot be overstated. With a commitment to visual innovations, and an artistic sense of sexuality, his work reflects my own views of women, and his contribution to photography will live on for generations to come.”
Wayda has photographed on four continents, from the African plains to Tengboche Monastery at the base of Mt. Everest, from the islands in the Pacific and the Caribbean to the cosmopolitan cities of Europe and from the heartland of America to the bustling cities of Asia.
