Photography and Creative Exploration

Stephen has been pursuing photography and creative visual expression since he acquired his first camera back in 1983. He works with many different visual artists, both painters and photographers, and continues to enjoy gathering new inspiration from as many artists as possible. Stephen has been influenced by the work of Freeman Patterson, Minor White, Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothco, Christopher Pratt, Lee Friedlander, William Eggleston, and many more. Stephen spent a week with Ernst Haas at his master class at the Maine Photographic Workshops in 1985, and by chance, met Jay Maisel, also a fellow at a Carbon Pigment printing workshop in the same location, both artists who praised his work. Stephen also presented his photography at the North American Nature Photographers Association conference in Corpus Christi, Texas in 1997. He has had numerous print exhibition locations including the Museum of Nature in Ottawa and the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia.
