Practically born with a camera in his hands, Chicago based Steven M. Koch is quickly emerging as one of today's most creative photographers/videographers.
Steven developed his art form from a family of photographers and illusionists. His diverse photographic repertoire includes gritty urban street life, and he is known Nationally for his carefully curated, and color-saturated portraiture of drag queens and kings.
“Lighting is EVERYTHING” states Steven, who does very subtle post-production editing. His work has appeared in countless magazines, ad campaigns, and art gallery exhibits. He also has a monthly column online in Go Pride.
A camera is only as good as the eye behind the lens. From concept to the final shot, Steven’s heart and soul are reflected in every image that he masterfully produces.
"We send all of our new hires over to his studio to get their headshots done and they always come back saying how they had fun and felt at ease."
