Featured Photographer: Steven Markham

24 February 2014

I am lucky enough to be born and bred in Sydney. I love this city, it has so much culture and such great architecture that lends itself to great photo opportunities.

As a young boy I believe I was very creative, I built cool places for my Matchbox cars and painted plenty of things I shouldn’t have.

I remember my first Canon EOS 50 film camera, and how I thought I was so cool to have it. Like so many photographers I loved having a camera in my hand, but what was different were the shots I took. They were different, I captured things diverse, and I didn’t know if it was any good, but it was how I saw it. Photography was my calling, my profession, my obsession and it would undoubtedly drive me insane! I studied photographers who were left of field or different, photographers like the great Trey Ratcliff, I have learnt so much from the master.

My wish in photography is to show people what I see through my eyes, exactly how I picture it in my head. I am a guy who looks through a magazine at all the nice pictures, but the only one I remember is the one that is different from the others, and that’s what I try to achieve. I assume perfection is possible and that’s what I try to achieve every time, this is what keeps me going. If that’s all you ever know about me, it’s enough to say you know me very well.
