Mercy Lamp Productions
Mercy Lamp Productions is owned by James Monk, a retired Combat Camera videographer with multiple tours in Iraq. He spent as much time with the US Army as he did with the Air Force. He deployed, worked, and lived with soldiers and often wore the Army uniform, participating in numerous combat missions, most notably Operation Phantom Fury; the recapture of the city of Fallujah in November of 2004. Retiring after nearly 23 years in service, together with his wife Julie and daughter Jenna, he formed Mercy Lamp Productions. Together they seek to shed a little light on genuine people, doing genuinely amazing things for their fellow man.

The Veterans Portrait Project
Stacy Pearsall began the Veterans Portrait Project in Charleston, SC, while recovering from her own combat injuries. While she sat for hours in waiting rooms, she couldn’t help but to notice the men and women around her. She reached out to hear the stories of veterans from every branch of service, generation and conflict and felt inspired to bring her camera and take their portraits, leading to the project that now fills the walls of a number of VA Hospitals across the United States. Today, Stacy continues her project and has photographed veterans from coast to coast. What started as Stacy’s path to recovery and healing has now grown into her personal mission to honor and thank her brothers and sisters for their service in the best way she knows how, photography. Many of the photos on our website, press materials, and gift books were taken by Stacy, and her photographer husband, Andy Dunaway. We are proud to call them friends and unbelievably fortunate to have them as partners.
