Raised in bi-lingual, multi-cultural household, Steven picked up photography at a young age. After years of studying he found a love for photographing people over anything else.

Steven's work is nuanced with storytelling and emotion as he enjoys capturing fleeting moments that would otherwise go unnoticed. He enjoys teaching photography and helps other photographers start their own businesses. 

He is a member of the Professional Photographers of America and is recognized by Nikon Professional Services for excellence in photography and his commitment to the Nikon brand (although he is ironically holding his friend's Canon in the photograph)

Steven now photographs nationwide for major brands and publications.
