Stephen has been a photographer for 18 years, starting with travel photography when we was only 16. Since he was a young kid he found beautiful moments to photograph each day and wanted to make each day that much more interesting. He loves the simple moments captured, getting that perfect moment captured, and get the perfect timing of a moment, something that can’t, and won’t, ever be seen again.
Creating a story in a single shot. Meeting the people behind the photo. Traveling for the photo. Editing the photos. Finding new lenses. I love it all!
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
Weddings and many other events. Realty, travel, food, family and senior portraits. Each type lends its own possibility of making them special. I am very good at finding new perspectives and providing alternative takes in addition to what is expected.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
Top Ten photographer in Madison for The Knot. Runner-up for Best Photo in Architecture at Minneapolis Photo Festival.
