Stephen was first introduced to Photography from his late Grandfather who was a keen hobby photographer. Steve soon gained a love for the camera and started to learn the art at a very early age. He majored in photography/art for VCE and then in years to come he continued to enhance his skills & knowledge by doing many specialised courses.
Steve's first professional job was requested by a family friend to shoot their son's special occasion, he hesitantly accepted but it all started from there. In time more and more friends asked Steve to photograph various parties & events which enabled him to build his confidence and his Folio. Word of mouth became Steve's best friend and he started to pick up more Photography work.
With Steve's passion for photography still evidentially visible , He was asked if he was interested in teaching a 'Basic Photography' class as part of the short courses program at Holmesglen. He gladly accepted and now over 10 years later, Steve is highly regarded by his peers & now designs/teaches many of the courses run at Holmesglen.
Steve has been professionally involved in Photography for over 20 years and continues to pursue the mysteries & art of Photography with the new generations of perspective couples/clients.
"I love interacting with different people with the opportunity to capture their special day, I see photography as story telling through my eyes, 'there is a start, a middle & an end'. I don't like to dictate the shot, I prefer to capture the natural essence of what is in front of me & then just fine tune the creative imagery. People around me say, I'm an easy going type of guy & very passionate when the camera is in my hands. You too will feel this passion & energy when I'm shooting your event!
It's not about the money, this is my Passion"!
