STATEMENT

Steve Dreyer is a fine art photographer based in New York City and Eastern Long Island, New York. His work is regularly shown in juried and group exhibits and is on display in fine art galleries. His photography is represented by Gallery 71 (www.gallery71.com), The Works Gallery, and is available at Saatchi Art. Steve’s images were selected for the production set of the popular series “The Affair” on the Showtime television network.

Like many of today’s fine art photographers, Steve originally used film and a darkroom to create his images. He eventually transitioned to digital cameras and processing to make his stylized photographs - always acknowledging that vision, composition, lighting and the story to be told is more important to the art than the tools to create it. He is of the school and is inspired by the work of other photographers such as Steve McCurry, Ansel Adams, Edward Weston and Michael Kenna.

Steve makes images in both color and black and white, with a focus on landscapes, cityscapes, travel and abstract art photography. His work has evolved over the years as his interests have changed with life experiences.

Steve writes for magazines (including Photo Technique, FujiLove and The Handmade Photograph), conducts workshops, offers individual customized training sessions, and publishes eBooks and Folios.

The management of the very popular and respected Armonk Art Show (awarded the second best art show in the U.S.) selected Steve as a judge for their show in
September 2018.

Steve is also active in several photography organizations and has professional member status in the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP).
