When not writing, performing, and recording folk music, Steve Rouch finds himself crouched behind the tool of his true passion?the camera. The former student of Ansel Adams and certified professional photographer lends his eye to capturing moments during portrait sessions for families, high school seniors, newborns, and kids with an emphasis on expert lighting. He bathes each angle in soft light or shadows with up to seven lights in each session, illuminating his subjects? best features while hiding their third row of teeth. While his mastery of lighting results in artfully composed images, his child-at-heart personality fosters a playful and relaxed setting in which clients can be themselves in front of the camera.
Having taken more than 6,000 portraits throughout his career, he?s developed a classical fine-art portraiture technique to craft stunning photos of moms-to-be, the family pet, and weddings. His photos in this style have graced Disney World?s Epcot Center, and earned him a 2012 MomentVille.com Hot List selection for his wedding photography.
