“THE AWESOME EXPERIENCE I’VE HAD HERE IS SHARED AMONG ALL OF THE MEMBERS”


ABOUT ME

My name is Stone Swiess, and it is my pleasure to capture the intensity of Elite Spartans’ workouts in photos and videos. I grew up in Pittsburgh, PA and moved to Silicon Valley after graduating from college in 2018. When I moved to San Jose I became familiar with Elite Spartans, and after working out there consistently for months I knew it was a rare and special place. The awesome experience I’ve had here is shared among all of the members and I knew the best way I could contribute to Elite Spartans’ success, and reaching more individuals who want to improve their lives through health and fitness, would be to translate my experience into photos and videos.
Studying at Point Park University in Downtown Pittsburgh, I pursued a business degree in Sports, Art, and Entertainment Management. Taking influence from a minor in broadcast journalism, I sculpted my creative skills to form a pathway into the industries that interest me most.
I’ve worked with exotic car dealers like Porsche, McLaren, Lamborghini, and Ferrari; I shot video for the Pittsburgh Penguins during their 2016 Stanley Cup Season (sorry Sharks fans!); and I freelance to help small/medium-sized businesses to establish their brand and tell their story in creative ways.
I’ve been creating content since 2009, and chasing after fitness goals for just as long. Working with the Elite Spartans team is getting me closer to my goals in the gym, all while sharpening my business acumen by working alongside Alex and the rest of the team.
I look forward to photographing your journeys!
