Stony Road Productions is the home of its creator Kaira Peyton alter egos' "Madame Producer" and "Mad Fotos", but is better known as the "Creative F*ckin Genius." Starting in a one bedroom apartment in the valley of California, this Chicago-born visual storyteller began a journey into creative storytelling using films, television and later photography to welcome the world into her universe.
Along the way, she has worked in the television and film industry on such productions as The Oprah Winfrey Show, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Spike Lee's "Chiraq", Showtime's Shameless and Steve McQueen's "Windows" feature film while honing her own creative talents and resources.
Stony Road is where narrative story, abstract ideas, urban locations and creativity come together. Urban fine art photography, narrative fashion editorial photography, abstract landscape photography, fashion films, music videos and short films now can equally exist under one umbrella created and curated by one individual. Art is better when there is no box.
"Stony the road we trod,
Bitter the chastening rod,
Felt in the days when hope unborn had died;
Yet with a steady beat,
Have not our weary feet
Come to the place for which our fathers sighed?
We have come over a way that with tears has been watered,
We have come, treading our path through the blood of the slaughtered,
Out from the gloomy past,
Till now we stand at last
Where the white gleam of our bright star is cast."
