Stephen is ‘not much older than 29’ and grew up in Great Neck, Long Island, New York. He grew up wanting to be a lawyer but studied Philosophy and Psychology at St. John’s University in Queens. He describes life in Great Neck as being “almost like in Manhattan, except that they have parking”. When in New York, he tends to shoot in Manhattan in one of the many rental studios available. He believes running his own studio is uneconomical. “While clients happily pay rental for studios and equipment hire, they’re never prepared to pay those fees for your own, so by the time you’ve paid $15,000 a month for rental plus your liability insurance, the studio ends up being the real liability.” Stephen is a Canon PrintMaster, which is a prestigious and elite group of professional photographers in the US.
