Hello! I’m Steven Michael, a Palm Springs based photographer specializing in portraits, events, fantasy, promotional and landscapes. Photography has been a passion of mine since high school working in the darkroom developing prints from chrome film as a contributing yearbook editor. I always had a disposable Kodak in tow way into my adult years, capturing our glorious youth and heyday, and still have the prints as blackmail. Then came along camera phones and everyone became a photographer in their own right. I'm currently using a Canon EOS and have a private studio set up in my home, and can travel.
My intent is to make real people look really good and incredibly comfortable in front of my lens. I'm able to do my own light touchups and airbrushing as I see fit but use sleight-of-hand to prevent an unreal looking quality in my imagery unless that's desired. My photography journey is a work in progress but I'm proud of what I've accomplished in my first year and will continue being creative with it. People ask me what I'm doing with my photography and I always reply with a smile, "moving forward."
