My name is Courtney Rust and I love my job as a wardrobe and prop stylist.

Courtney came out of photography school with big plans to become a commercial photographer. It was during her many years as a photographer’s assistant and studying film that she discovered her love to tell stories wasn’t through the camera, it was rather in creating the environment.

With more than 15 years working in print, Courtney now works equally styling in motion. She has the ability to do a range of styling: on-figure wardrobe, soft goods (off-figure wardrobe), and propping. You will often see her dressing professional athletes and kids.  She has worked on campaigns with internationally recognized brands such as Nike, Harley Davidson, Land of Nod, and Volkswagen.  She’s a member of Studio Mechanics, 476 Union.

Courtney is based out of Chicago, but has and will happily travel nationwide and internationally for assignments.  If you’d like to see more examples of her work, please email her at: courtney@courtneyrust.com
