Steve grew up in England. Photography and natural science were the passions of his youth. After completing studies in physics at Liverpool University, Steve went on to work as an experimental physicist in Geneva, Switzerland. In 1987 he moved to the U.S. to teach physics at Harvard University. His scientific career eventually brought him to Chicago to work at Fermilab in Batavia, IL. It was in Chicagoland, at the time of the digital revolution, that Steve’s photography really took off when he began selling stock images. In 2015 Steve joined the Perspective Gallery of Fine Art Photography in Evanston, Illinois and is currently on the gallery’s Board of Directors.
In recent years Steve has had his work featured in photography magazines, published in books and exhibited in galleries in the United States and Europe. His featured exhibitions at the Perspective Gallery have been: Chicago through the Looking Glass (February 2016), From the Ground Up (April 2017), One-sixth of a Second (February 2018), Discarded (June 2019), and River Ice (February 2020). In 2021 Steve became a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society.
