"Hi I'm Steven, and I'd love to hear from you!"
I am Steven, an Equestrian Video & Stills Photographer based in Calgary, Alberta.
I will get right to the point. How exactly did I discover my passion for horses and why videography and photography of all professions?
I found my passion for horses through a past human connection that I had in my life. This person introduced me to these amazing animals and the rest soared from there.
My passion for photography originally stemmed from portraiture. I started off as a full-out techy gear-head, more fascinated by feeling and admiring camera gear itself than actually using it. I am still very much a gear-head, but I truly believe that I was very wise when I decided to introduce myself to the world of photography, and seeing what I could do with a camera in my hands when I started shooting wedding photography for friends. My stint with wedding photography was short but highly rewarding.
I’ve been lucky to have known many horse friends in my life, and that led to my love for photographing the most beautiful creatures on planet earth. What drives me in life is my commitment to excellence and desire to consistently get better, both from a personal and academic standpoint. I do what I have to do and learn what I need to learn to get myself to where I need to be.
I am devoted to creating visual memories for horse owners and riders to cherish for a lifetime. There is no better feeling than capturing the bond between horses and their humans. Your equine friend is the most important thing in the world, and I know you want photos you can treasure and hold close to your heart for the rest of your life.
No job is too big or too small for me. I thrive on pressure. I crave a deep but highly rewarding challenge. I jump to new heights when I am challenged and most importantly, I know how to get the job done well beyond expectations.
Not only am I a photographer, I am also a cinematographer. Self taught, just like with my photography, I dove into videography in 2010 as a part-time endeavour to indulge my passion for capturing events and telling stories.
I enjoy working with individuals, groups, animal lovers, small businesses and entrepreneurs. My goal is to help them capture, communicate and share their events, life experiences and ideas in professional, stylish, high quality videos and photos.
I truly do believe that I am the luckiest person in the world because I get to do this every day!
