Stephen was born in Los Angeles but moved to the NYC suburbs a youngster. His interest in photography began with a small darkroom at age ten. His father worked for Time Inc. so there were lots of books about photography in the house. Life Magazine photographer W. Eugene Smith was an early hero.
For the past twenty years Stephen has devoted himself to mastering the modern tools and techniques of image making and presentation. He has enjoyed exhibiting his work in galleries, first in Santa Barbara and then Santa Fe where he now lives and works.
