Hi, I am Steve Chadwick

I am a nationally awarded portrait and sports photographer in Chandler, AZ. I focus on high school seniors, college grads, dancers and help new models build their portfolio. I sponsor the Hamilton Dance Company and I am the lead photographer for The Young Agency. I shoot high school sports for MaxPreps, a division of CBS.

I focus on quality over volume – that’s my style. My goal is to deliver a natural looking photo that truly captures your personality. And, you’ll always recognize the person looking back at you in the photo.

“Steve is a great photographer! He made me feel so comfortable in front of the camera and we had a lot of fun during the shoot. He was easy going and he works extremely well with lighting. Oftentimes, it’s hard to find photographers like Steve!! I definitely plan on shooting with him again!!”
