Steve embarked on his professional career working in commercial labs and grew with the beginnings of the digital age. In the years since, he pursued the digital photographic form in both his artistic and commercial practices.
He built and steered his own professional studio and discovered inspiration in passing on his skills to others through teaching at Hunter TAFE and now, Melbourne Polytechnic.
Along the way he's acquired numerous awards. Most recently being honoured with the 2015 AIPP VIC Professional Photographer of the Year in Australia. His talent on the ground for inspiring his fellow photographers and commercial clients, as well as his continuing public advocacy for the digital arts, have led to him being honoured with the title of an ILFORD Master.
