From a client perspective, one thing I enjoyed about working with Stephen is that he works hard to thoroughly understand the client's needs and cares about making sure those needs are met. Stephen takes great images, but he also understands that there is more to photography than taking pretty pictures, he works to communicate the client's message through each image. As someone who works on tight deadlines, I appreciate his quick turnaround time and attention to detail.

Hi. Thank you for the pictures you took of my daughter and me. In the pictures you took it shows how much love there is between me and my daughter. She is my world. One of my favorite pictures is the black and white one where it kind of fades near the edges. I was going to try and have my daughter pose but you told me to let her be natural and I'm glad you did because they came out GREAT!!!!!

Your photography and creativity are truly spectacular! One of the things I appreciate most about what you share is your ability to capture the extraordinary in the seemingly ordinary.
Viewing your photography regularly has taught me how to observe the world around me with greater depth, compassion, mindfulness and love. Your images resonate on many levels and bring such beauty and joy into my life every day. I love sharing these gifts and blessings with others through your website.
I've also purchased prints, a tote bag and mugs that are absolutely exquisite and I exhibit, use and gift to others who are always so delighted and very grateful! The quality of the photos and merchandise is exceptional as is the 100% guarantee offered by SmugMug. I also so very much appreciate your accessibility and willingness to do all you can to ensure I'm happy with the things I order.
Thank you so much, Stephen for your hard work and deep passion for your photography, your art and most definitely for everything you photograph.
I highly recommend your slide show. As I sat back and enjoyed each photo drift in and out I felt my heart being touched and soothed by the beauty. No matter what was reflected in the photo - there consistently was a warmth and depth that resonated in a very, very special way. I can tell that you put so much care and consideration in sharing this very wonderful gift. Thank you.
Your tremendous love of man and nature is so obvious through your connection with them and the images you create. I wish you many, many years of continued success!

“Working with Stephen was a great pleasure. He exceeded our expectations, providing quality images with efficiency and professionalism. A special essence was captured in his work that was greatly appreciated. Stephen will be our go-to photographer for The Bay Area should we need a job done in the future.” – Maxxam Enterprises, Beverly Hills, CA
You have the ability to capture an image with such precision, allure, imagination and life. Your connection with nature is portrayed through each picture and evokes strong sentiments for me.
Your pictures are crisp and technical, yet soft and real. When watching a slideshow of your pictures, I am transported to the location site. What a gift to receive the benefits of a new exploration and adventure while sitting at my desk watching the slideshow!
These are a few reasons why I chose to use some of your images for my business website. I appreciated how easy you made the process of purchasing and using the photos for both myself and my website designer.
Many people have commented on how beautiful the pictures are and have visited the many stunning pictures you have on your website.
Thank you for bringing your gift of photography to our world. May you continue to touch others through these images and more. Whether moved to tears or smiles, your photos bring with them a special love and compassion, a web and magic.
