Years of professional experience has truly made Steve a master photographer who understands light and its relationship to printing with the many different substrates available including the new pigments for digital printing. Making traditional prints for over 30 years, Steve has found an exciting new medium photographing digitally, and printing the image as an original print rather than a reproduction of an existing art work. "How often in a lifetime is an artist given the opportunity to be at the forefront of a new art movement. One that will be so important that art, as we know it from this point on, will be forever influenced. Since DaVinci first began the use of his Camera Obscura, technology has slowly crept into art and the making of art. Now these creative and artistic technologies have become advanced enough that new artistic boundaries are broken through so regularly that the imagination is finally coming very close to being the only hurdle left to expression." "I call some of what I do sculpting with light and other times I am merely drawing and painting or reproducing with pixels instead of film and chemicals. Its much too much fun to use it literally as magic brush and canvas. These are just new art materials and tools. Some of Steves images have their genesis in his original photographs which are scanned into the computer, collaged, "painted" and otherwise manipulated by various software programs. They are then printed on textured paper with archival inks and sometimes further enhanced by applying various paints and pencils to the surface. "I had images floating in my mind for years that I was unable to reproduce photographically" he said. "I am so fascinated by the absolute freedom afforded by the digital medium to create my mindscapes."
