Stephen is a dedicated photographer with a focus on making highly detail and large scale prints. Much of his work will include multiple frames that have been stitched together to produce a massive single large file. It is not uncommon for there to be upwards of twenty or more photos made into one single super high resolution image capable of being printed the size of a billboard but at traditional high resolution photo quality.
As you view the photographs you will see that much of Stephen's passion really comes alive after the sun goes down and the sky becomes dark. Quite a number of his photographs feature the a beautifully lit city skyline with the twilight glow, the sparkling of the Milky Way graciously poised against night sky, the popular circular star trails and his growing collection of Aurora Borreallis. (Northern Lights) During the past couple of years Stephen has found that there are a growing number of people that share his passion for photographing the dark night sky and has been conducting a long exposure star photography workshops in with tremendous success. To increase the accessibility he will be taking the workshops on the road in 2014 and will be offering his long exposure night workshop to camera clubs throughout western Canada.

In April of 2012 Stephen opened his first gallery, Unique Captures in Penticton British Columbia Canada. During the first year the gallery was a modest 300 sq. ft and accommodated a recognizable collection of local imagery. Today the gallery had grown to almost 1200 sq. ft. with a steady increasing number of collectors. In addition to his featured works the gallery now provides a much needed venue for emerging photographers to display their works and have access to a gallery setting.
During the summer of 2013 Stephen took on a personal project to bring timelapse photography to the big screen. At this time much the details are being kept private with the final release date expected to be in the spring of 2016 with the title of "Beautiful places and wide open spaces".
