The more challenging the setting, the better. An expert at capturing authentic human experience, Steve is best known for bringing an innovative and fresh twist to all of his assignments. He's also been told that he's an "entertaining" personality and hardcore sugar junkie who can get even granite rocks to loosen up in his sessions. Celebrities dig him. Mothers love him. And animals are always following him home.
