'Into The White' attempts to capture a feeling all too rare in the modern urban environment, quiet solitude. 

INFORMATION

These images were created in the midst of a snow storm on the fringes of locations that would normally be full of activity at other times of the year but in the depth of winter, these locations become still and introspective.  Exploring this environment, particularly as an Australian used to much milder winters, there is a great sense of calmness and the impression of boundless space.

There is amazing beauty in seeing the world rendered into monochrome with vertical geometric elements, both natural and man made, standing in stark contrast to the thick blank canvas of snow.

BIO: After discovering his father's camera at an early age, Steve embarked on a professional career in a series of photographic commercial labs. He witnessed the beginnings of the digital camera revolution and embraced the change, becoming an Adobe Certified Expert.

In the years since, Steve pursued the photographic form in both his artistic and commercial practices. He built and steered his own professional studio and discovered inspiration in passing on his skills to others. Along the way he's acquired numerous awards. Most recently being honoured with Epson Victorian Travel Photographer of the Year in 2016 three years running and the Australian Travel Photographer of the Year in Melbourne.

His talent on the ground for inspiring his fellow photographers and nurturing his peers through education, as well as his continuing public advocacy for the arts, have led to him being honoured with the title of an ILFORD Master in 2013.
