Steve is a world-traveled and published fine art photographer based out of Mesa, Arizona, who's artistic focus is on nature and the story of humanity. An Arizona native, he grew to love the AmericanSouthwest and all that nature offers, including the iconic features, beautiful landscapes, and brilliant sunsets of the desert. Over the last 40 years Steve has traveled professionally to over 35 countries, documenting the beauty of each through his unique perspective. Steve's innate talent for seeing the beauty in all things, coupled with his refined eye for light, balance and composition, has resulted in a spectacular collection of photographic art, available now for the first time to the public.
Steve is a commercially rated pilot and for more than three decades, has perfected his very unique approach of shooting through the open window of a Cessna, while simultaneously piloting the aircraft. His refined skills as both a pilot, and seasoned fine art photographer, have facilitated a captivating collection of fine art aerial images. His greatest thrill is in finding that ideal and unique perspective, whether from aircraft, drone, off-road exploration, or marathon hiking excursions into the remote back-country of the planet he loves.
Steve's continued enthusiasm for capturing dramatic frames of familiar subjects, epic landscapes and awe-inspiring exposures of the night sky is his passion, fueled with the conviction that his gifts and talents are ultimately for the benefit of others. His driving philosophy is echoed in the words of Aristotle: "The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but the inward significance."
We are excited now, for the first time ever, to offer Steve’s entire collection of museum quality limited edition photography to the public. Act now to bring the beauty of these limited edition prints to the walls of your home and work space.
Steve lives with his wife, Liz, in Mesa, AZ, where they raised five children, and enjoy their 12 grandchildren, who lovingly call him “Guapo.”
