Steve began his pursuit of aviation as a B-52G gunner with the USAF. With a mechanical and aerospace engineering degree, Steve continued working with defense contractors on aircraft that include F-16, E-2C/D, VH-71, and all F-35 variants. Steve also earned aircraft and hang glider pilot ratings.
Armed with a Kodak Instamatic 110 camera and a series of Kodak professional photography textbooks at the age of 9, Steve’s lifelong pursuit of photography continued with wildlife, travel, landscape, concert, and event photography works. It was only a matter of time before professional and photography passions converged.
