About Steve

As a photojournalist, Steve strives to use photography in the literal Greek sense – “to write with light” – to communicate ideas, capture the essence of events, and make images that reveal the unexpected, instill compassion, and celebrate life.

As an artist, Steve ventures outside of traditional photojournalism. I love to experiment with mixed media, which allows for a wide range of creative expression.  This includes my portrait photography work.

  1. Steve,

    Greetings. I am originally from Quincy and have taken many photographs there. I would like some input on some HDRs that I have taken there as well. My email is Mattquintero@gmail.com.

    If you could please send me a message there so I can have your email, I would really appreciate it.

    Best,

    Matt
