Steve is an emerging photographer new to the fine art photography scene. He is looking for representation and to work with galleries known for their appreciation of photography as an art form. Please contact him with any questions or inquiries.
He started in 35mm SLR photography over twenty years ago and today is absolutely in love the digital revolution. Photography is how he keeps his sanity and creativity.
Images do not simply come "straight out of the camera" (SOOC). They need additional input and direction from the photographer/artist. The physical taking of the photograph is only the first step in the artistic process. None of the great photographers, whether using film or digital, simply snapped an image and left it there. Ansel Adams spent hours in the darkroom laboring over his prints, dodging and burning and exposing and on and on. All other artistic photographers did and still do the same. Adams even imagined the rise of "electronic" pictures and thought that that would eventually only help the artist. He was not as hung up on the media as much as realizing the ideas in the artists head. Today we may work on computers instead of the chemical darkroom, but the artistry still comes from the photographer using a modern set of tools.
He currently lives near Seattle, WA, and enjoys the amazing scenery available to him in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
