Steven Peterson

I worked in a building, no windows, locked doors, and bulletproof walls. Not exactly nurturing the creative side.

One day I decided it was enough, sold everything I owned, quit my job, traded in the car for a beat up truck, and moved to the coast. I spent a year not working, touring what Vancouver Island had to offer and I fell in love with that Island. I wanted others to know how amazing it was so I learned how to use a camera and ever since I've been trying to capture what I see, not what the lens sees.

Five years later, I'm working on the Island as a Dive Instructor, and a paramedic. I picked the two careers that would give me enough time and reason to keep travelling.

I hope you enjoy what you see!
