As a 27-year-old photographer, Steven's work has created waves in the portrait photography industry. His vivid colors and attention to detail have been the buzz since early in his photography career.


Steven picked up photography at a young age. Growing up in a creative, multi-cultural household, he studied under his father before continuing on his own, pursuing an education in photography and digital marketing. He now has a studio of his own in Chicago's West Town neighborhood where he has become one of the most in-demand photographers for drag queen photography.


Steven enjoys road trips, music festivals, and film photography outside of work.


He is a 4-year member of Professional Photographers of America.
