Welcome!


As an Arizona sports and portrait photographer, I aim for bold, vibrant images that highlight my subjects in the best possible light. Whether they be a high school senior scoring a game-winning goal, a professional model posing for a beauty ad, or maybe you are a realtor or professional needing an updated corporate headshot for LinkedIn, Facebook, or a website. I am recognized as one of the strongest high school senior photographers in the Southwest, capturing moments that will last a lifetime. I utilize composition, color, and toning skills to deliver high-end portraits that stand out. I have a solid technical engineering background and understand light, exposure, and angles. As an engineer, I have created robust processes that ensure timely customer feedback on all fronts.

Quality is my brand. My portraits are individually retouched in Photoshop; I do not outsource. I never use presets, filters, or blurs. I work on each portrait (tones, skin, blemishes) - the final images speak for themselves as do 285+ 5-star Google Reviews

Experience: I bring 15 years to every session. As the lead photographer for the largest Phoenix talent agency, I have posed 100's of models and will ensure you look amazing! Your safety and comfort are my top priority while we capture unforgettable moments together. Timely: I target proofs within 24 hours and edits within a few days. Testimonial: "I've been shooting with Steve for over a year, and he is a perfectionist. He never gets into your personal space. He will whip his head around if you are making adjustments - which is super respectful. And he takes the best pictures of me and I get to see the proofs that night!" —Sydney M, HS senior (center box).

I spend time with my wife and three amazing kids when I’m not on the field or in the studio. I also love fishing, traveling, and scuba diving.
