The first time Stephen saw an image come up in the developer tray it was magical - alchemical - turning silver into images. Taught to print as a job requirement, a year later he traded prints and processing to a client for a used camera and a 50mm lens. Stephen entered the world of photography through the darkroom. He shot Marcel Marceau for a theater magazine, and started taking any job offered with the belief that he’d figure it out or fix it in the darkroom. He would make calls, borrow equipment and read books. He had become passionate about photography and always had a camera with him - addicted to the heightened visual awareness that always looking for a picture brings.
