Steve broke into the filmmaking world in 2016 with his first three features making premieres and sales at Sundance and TIFF alongside a Variety nod to the Artisan’s List list.  Since, he’s built a reputation as an award winning feature cinematographer on blockbusters Creed II, Godzilla, and Searching II, alongside continuing his life-long passion for global adventure and documentary work.  Steve has embedded cameras and crews into some of the most extreme and cutting-edge environments known to man for viral Amazon, Youtube, and Netflix programming hosted and produced by Downey Jr, DiCaprio, and Momoa, winning a LEO Award for Best Cinematography.  Driven by first ascents and motivated by an inexhaustible curiosity for the world, Steve’s filmmaking journey began on an unlikely international documentary film career at the age of seventeen for IBM’s Watson Foundation, living with a spearfishing family on the edge of the Samoan archipelago chronicling their recovery after a volcanic explosion and tsunami wrecked their village.  A champion for the next generation of artists, Steve spends his time off-assignment working abroad through his art-centric humanitarian non-profit Artalyst and frequently chasing big waves and new adventures.
