Stoffel’s accomplished photography has also been featured in many outlets including the New York Times, Huffington Post, Vanity Fair, and Hawaiian Airlines Magazines.

He was featured in AM New York’s Premiere Art Rocks event, coverage which brought him tons of fans, including the folks at Dylan’s Candy Bar.
After seeing coverage of Luke in the daily, Dylan's Candy Bar commissioned him to work on a confection-inspired collection which Stoffel named “Sweetness”. Because of his consistent showings and press, GLAAD recognized Stoffel as one of their Top 100 artists for 2009.
