I'm a true believer that wedding photography doesn't have to be boring, and I'm honoured to work with many couples who hold the same beliefs. I've made it my mission to produce meaningful and emotional imagery, but in a modern and creative way, far removed from the contrived stuffyness of traditional wedding photography. 

I like pinacoladas, getting caught in the rain. Oh hang on, that's not me. I like fancy coffee, IPA, sports, and the great outdoors. Oh, and photography, that's cool too. 


Hello, I'm Steve...

It all started way back in the 80s. I would "borrow" my Dad's Canon AE-1 film camera for school trips and holidays and take a ton of really artistic (rubbish) photos. Sometimes I got lucky. Sometimes I spent all my pocket money on film and didn't get a single usable image. Fortunately, after a while, photoshop came along and I was able to learn how to fix my rubbish photography. I'd spend hours compositing images. For example, I'd take an elephant from the zoo and put it in the sea in Tenerife, and I'd hand paint each stone in a dry stone wall a different colour. Eventually, through much trial and error I got to the stage where 'most' of the images from a roll of film were usable. In 1995 I photographed my friend's (Michelle and Ian) wedding with a manual Sunpak flash, a second hand sigma lens, a tin of tomatoes and 12 rolls of film. The rest, as they say, is history.
