People love Steve’s work and they love working with him. He has been fortunate to work with many great creatives over the years. The question he is asked most on that first call though, is not usually about his work, how he works with people (fabulously) or what he thinks of the project at hand, it is almost always “How do you pronounce your name?”
Steve is fluent in Spanish. He recently moved back to the San Francisco Bay Area from Nayarit, Mexico. He has shot extensively (both in English and in Spanish) on large and small productions throughout the world with an emphasis on USA, Mexico, and the Caribbean. Sometimes it makes sense to take a production to Mexico when clients are serving Latin markets, and the fact that Steve has resources in Mexico as well as a command of the language makes him the right man for the job. Having the ability to translate a client’s ideas into great photography no matter where he is doesn’t hurt either. Once they get past the roadblock of a name, clients love Steve’s attention to detail, and his ability to set up authentic situations in front of his camera.
When he’s not shooting he can be found trying to get used to the cold water of the Northern California Coast on a surfboard with his kids or skiing down the slopes of the Sierra Nevada where he coaches a ski team
