More about Stephen R...

What do you love about your job?
For me photography is all about people , and making images they love. That moment of spark when you look at something in a new way. Values that are imperative to me are integrity, authenticity, a sense of humour and finding the beauty in a situation. Photography facilitates, my curiosity, and this is what I love about it as a profession, shooting overseas jobs can be just as fascinating as family shoot, you never know who you will meet. Exploring techniques and photographing people in a complementary and striking way is what keeps me interested in shooting. The next one will be the best image! I like to make the cameras, facilitate my vision, and move responsively to make the best of the situation.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
People shoots are my favourite as they keep my skills and mind engaged, every shoot is different and I like to capture character and use light to bring out people's best. Sometimes the best shots come out of the a challenging situation, such as rain at a wedding and I like to turn this around to add drama and impact to images. Recently I shot a job for a family who was going to loose a loved one, whilst that was upsetting as he is an elite member of society, the family cherished the images as a strong memory of their loved one. Other times I shoot portraits weddings and events and people are overjoyed, often confiding at the end of the shoot that they were so nervous, but it was good experience. I find photography rewarding in this way to make people happy and genuinely improve their self esteem.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
My Awards are more client based, such as flagship images for international campaigns for NGO agencies that yielded over a Million dollars, directly changing the lives of people in Outer Mongolia, Cambodia, Jamaica, Peru, and Rwanda. Making emotionally evocative, images that have ethical authenticity is of great value to me. That is the same for work conducted locally.
A fun fact about this photographer
Clients often ask why I wear knee pads until they see me in action.
