Hi, I am Steve Chadwick

I am a nationally awarded portrait and sports photographer in Chandler, Arizona. With a strong engineering background, I see the light, angles, and exposure differently than most photographers, which benefits my clients! I focus on high school seniors, graduations, headshots, and dancers. I also build portfolios for models. I am the lead photographer for The Young Agency. This extensive work with models means I excel at posing my clients, which is often a client worry! I photograph high school sports (MaxPreps) and collegiate and professional sports. I focus on quality over volume. I deliver a natural-looking photo that truly captures your personality. I am known for being very timely in my delivery, measured in days, not weeks.

What others say...

What makes me unique?

  • Quality of Edits: Many photographers say they edit images but only apply filters or bleach out the image. I edit every image in Photoshop (never outsourced), which drives consistency and quality. National awards are below.
  • Agency Photographer: Exceptional quality from posing to the final edits; I bring this experience to our photoshoot.
  • Sports Photographer: I shoot sports professionally; let's bring movement to our photo shoot.



“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!!”
