When Steve was 17 years old, his dad gave him his first camera—a Pentax K1000—along with the only formal instruction he ever received: "Leave this dial on 60 and just move this ring until the light meter needle is in the middle." Steve heeded this snippet of advice as he sharpened his skills through trial and error, learning how to turn his "non-working efforts" into photographs worthy of the future's finest history books. His first paying gig came along in the form of a friend's sister's wedding, which earned him a total profit of $6. Since then, Steve has photographed more than 400 weddings, built an extensive portfolio, and amassed an impressive collection of stolen souls.
