After discovering his father's camera at an early age, Steve embarked on a professional career in a series of photographic commercial labs. He witnessed the beginnings of the digital camera revolution and embraced the change, becoming an Adobe Certified Expert. In the years since, Steve pursued the photographic form in both his artistic and commercial practices and he's acquired numerous awards along the way. In 2017, Steve won the Australian Industry for Professional Photographers (AIPP) Australian Photographic Book of the Year, was the AIPP Victorian Travel Photographer of the Year 2014, 2015 and 2016 and won overall AIPP Australian Travel Photographer of the Year in 2016.
His talent on the ground for inspiring his fellow photographers and nurturing his peers through education, as well as his continuing public advocacy for the digital arts, has led to him being honoured with the title of an Ilford Master. Today Steve continues to expand his commercial portfolio whilst also developing his artistic profile. This has resulted in a number of personal art exhibitions to date.
