Everything is major when it comes to accomplished photographer, graphic artist and make up artist Steven D. Hill. By applying the perfect combination of vision, talent, and dedication he has become internationally recognized in his field. He is known for his innovation, exceptional quality, and the care and thought he put into every piece of his work. It doesn't take much to see that he has an innate gift for creating beauty.
It’s not his first time making himself over. In college, Hill took courses in fashion design and makeup for the stage, but it wasn’t until after graduation that he discovered his talent for photography. Other than skimming through a photography how-to book, he’s completely self-taught. Hill has already made a name for himself in the local fashion community through his work on both sides of the camera.
Hill takes the principles he learned from design communication and color theory and translates that to what he sees through his camera lens. His specialty is shockingly fashion-forward imagery with splashes of supersaturated color contrasted to moody monochromes. “I believe the interactive media side of my studies taught me how to better understand composition and how to communicate through design,” he says. “It’s my art. I really enjoy creating art and capturing it through the lens of a camera, using the unique forms of light to create an amazing photograph. Just like a painter, it takes tools to produce a great image.
