Inspired by the famous New York photographer, Weegee, Steve began his career as a copyboy with News Ltd in Sydney.
Many of his first published pictures were taken in his spare time at night when chasing ambulances became an obsession. His first front page picture in a major daily newspaper was of an injured woman taken on New Year’s Eve way back in 1985.
Since then he has worked for both daily and weekly newspapers, freelanced for magazines and spent several years shooting soccer.
In 2002 Steve won the prestigious Nikon-Walkley Prize for regional photography.
In 2003 he published a book titled ‘Country spirit: The ups and downs of life in regional Australia’ which showcased a decade of his press photography.
In addition to still photography Steve is exploring the world of video with a particular interest in producing documentaries.
Steve has a deep passion for Latin America and its culture and enjoys visiting this remarkable part of the world whenever possible. With such a diverse landscape the photographic opportunities are endless allowing him to explore other forms of photography.
