Beauty is often discovered in the ordinary. Sometimes unseen shapes and colors only emerge when you push beyond comfort. For me the camera is more paintbrush than recording medium. The photo is merely a starting point... My work is sometimes "traditional" photography but mostly I aim to interpret and reshape the work to artistic expression unbound by the "rules" of photojournalistic realness. I don't experience the fear of saturation or composition.
Picasso is alleged to have said "Learn the rules like a pro so you can break them like an artist".
“Steve's work expresses such joy for the subjects and for making art. We love seeing the unexpected through his eyes ”
