Dryfly Fisherman

Before I started my own companies (now retired), I had a job that took me around the world. I always took a pack flyrod with me and have flyfished in some wonderful waters. The picture of me on the left with an average-sized beautiful brown trout taken on a dryfly was shot on South Island, New Zealand. I look forward to returning soon with my boys – they are both fine flyfishermen.


I constantly had a camera with me on flyfishing trips, have seen and shot some spectacular locations, and look forward to sharing them with you here. Early photos are scans from Kodachrome 25 slides – before digital and Photoshop.


Bapa Steve has three of the smartest, best looking, and fab personality grandkids on the planet.

Hobby Out of Control

I have had so much fun pretending to call fly fishing photography work, that I still describe this endeavor as a ‘hobby out of control’. It has been my absolute pleasure to work with some of the finest publishers, magazine and photo editors, and graphic artists in the world.

Fishing Bum with a Camera

I am more of a shoot from the hip photographer. I rarely use a tripod and I usually have to put down my fly rod or the oars to organize a shot. My style is basically editorial in nature and natural. I do not use professional models or fancy lighting. If I did, I couldn’t call this a ‘hobby out of control’.

Deep Collection

I have a very deep collection of images. I have made over 50 trips to Alaska and over 30 trips each to the Bahamas and Belize. Let me know what you are looking for – I’ll probably have it.
