A Message from Steve

I was introduced to photography at age 18 while attending a small college in Maryland. I soon discovered that I loved interacting and photographing people. I sought out a mentor in the photography industry and eagerly absorbed everything I could about lighting, posing, and interacting with people.
Having a strong entrepreneurial spirit, I opened my first portrait photography studio at Clearwater Mall, in Clearwater, Florida at age 22. I was ready to change the world with my imagery. I believed that creating beautiful images of people could help them tell their stories and build their confidence.
Forty years later my love for interacting and photographing people has not wavered. I get so much joy and satisfaction from building the confidence of my subjects through delivering a finished piece of very personal art that projects Confidence, Warmth, and Trust. There are still a lot of people out there that don’t like to be photographed and avoid it at all costs. I believe I can change that behavior with a little psychology, a strong dose of self-confidence, a touch of humor, and 40 years of photography experience.
I want to build self-confidence in each of my subjects. I want each person to realize their unique qualities and embrace them proudly, with new confidence. I want to be remembered as the photographer that "took the time and interest to create the best photo I have ever had taken”


MY PASSION: Building confidence in others and making people laugh.

MY VALUES:  Earning Trust through Honesty.  Under Promise and Over Deliver!
