Artist Bio

Steve J. Giardini is a professional outdoor nature and landscape photographer. He is an artist, educator, speaker and photo tour instructor & guide.

Influenced by both mid-1900 and contemporary landscape photographers, Steve adopted a fine art photography approach that utilizes natural light and a traditional, but unique composition style. The majority of his images are taken an hour before or after sunrise or sunset when the light is soft but dramatic.

Influence

Steve hopes his photographs elicit a visceral response from viewers. He wants his images to motivate people to explore the outdoors. Equally important, he hopes his photos instill a sense of personal obligation to help preserve the natural world.

Published

Steve’s work had been published in the international online Landscape Photography Magazine, the Bend Lifestyle magazine, and is displayed in businesses and homes throughout Central Oregon and around the world. More than 350 of his prints hang in the St. Charles Hospital System.

Participants can “expected to be challenged without being intimidated”. Expect a methodical but flexible learning approach. Expect value-added instruction, endless enthusiasm, and intellectual honesty.
