Steve’s approach and philosophy to photography is best summed up in this quote:
“I believe that a passion for the subject is an essential pre-requisite for a successful photograph. If the photographer feels ambivalent about whatever is seen through the viewfinder how can they hope to have any impact on those who see the final photograph?
Communicating mood & emotion are my most important motivators for making images. For me the heart of photography is to capture and communicate what I’m feeling, as much (if not more) than what I see at the time of releasing the shutter. If my photographs speak to the viewer on an emotional level then I have succeeded in my work”.
