I love REAL. Real people. Real stories. Real photos. My work is about capturing life moments to create a point of connection with a subject and the viewer. Be it for advertising, editorial, or personal development. I work to connect.
One of my recent clients summed me up perfectly:
"I know I can always count on Steve to deliver beautiful images, but more than that, he is always very much focused on being in the moment, connecting with humankind in a very emotional way. That’s what I love about Steve. He dives deeply into life and his work and is not afraid to open up his whole self to get to that deeper connection. It’s rare in this industry of posturing and ego."
