A hard-working, rock ‘n’ roll man to his bones, when it comes to taking photographs of rock and pop stars, this dude is as good as it gets today.
Steve has been at the top of his profession for the better part of 20 years. A guitarist with a proper rock ‘n’ roll history behind him, he’s one of the go-to guys for live photography, which is why major record labels, bands and publications queue at his door to work with him.
He has an utterly staggering CV of people that he’s photographed. Check these out – and this is just a few of them!
ZZ Top, Whitesnake, Thin Lizzy and Motley Crue, The Who, Joe Satriani, Peter Frampton, Bruce Springsteen, Kiss, Iron Maiden, U2, The Police, Taylor Swift, Paul McCartney, Bon Jovi, Oasis, BB King, Rihanna, The Foo Fighters, Elton John, Lady Gaga, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, Katy Perry, Queen, Usher, Slash and the Eagles.
Basically, if they’ve played live in the last 20 years, Steve will almost certainly have photographed them and what’s more, after so long in the business, because he’s super professional, super good and a stand-up bloke, he can call of lot of these rock stars friends.
Sometimes, when Steve’s photos drop into my inbox I genuinely find them staggering. They’re not merely naturalistic representations, rather, they have an almost hyper-realism to them, which perfectly expresses the kinetic power of an artist live on stage. His ability to balance space and darkness with light and colour, is second to none. His photos simply breathe.
An expert in his field and a purveyor of his own unique kind of visual poetry, it’s a pleasure and an honour to work with someone who delivers the goods time and time again.
