Craig Stevenson Photographer, Retoucher and Photoshop Artist.

BRITISH PHOTOGRAPHER CRAIG STEVENSON STARTED HIS JOURNEY INTO PHOTOGRAPHY IN HIS EARLY TEENS, WHEN HE WAS FIRST INTRODUCED TO THE WORLD OF BLACK AND WHITE PHOTOGRAPHY, AND WAS HOOKED AT AN EARLY AGE TAKING PHOTOGRAPHS, AND DEVELOPING THEM IN HIS FATHERS TINY SHED AT THE BACK OF HIS GARDEN.

IT SEEMED DESTINY, LITTLE WAS THERE BACK IN THOSE DAYS IN RESPECT OF PHOTOGRAPHY SCHOOLS, SO IT WAS ALL SELF TAUGHT, READING EVERY BOOK HE COULD GET HIS HANDS ON, STUDYING EVERY TECHNIQUE THERE WAS. EXPERIMENTING WITH COLOUR, BUT IT WAS BLACK AND WHITE THAT CAPTURED HIS SOUL, AND STILL TO THIS DAY HE LOVES THE NAKED REPRESENTATION BLACK AND WHITE PHOTOGRAPHY SO BEAUTIFULLY CAPTURES.

IN THE MID NINETIES ARMED WITH A HASSLEBLAD, HE FOUND A PASSION FOR PHOTOGRAPHING PEOPLE, IT WAS THE FACT THAT WITH THE FEW FEATURES A HUMAN IS EQUIPPED WITH, EYES, NOSE, LIPS, THERE ARE A BILLION VERY DIFFERENT SOULS TO CAPTURE.

CRAIG HAS ALSO ENJOYED A FIFTEEN YEAR CREATIVE CAREER WORKING IN VISUAL EFFECTS IN THE MOVIES, AND HAS A LIST OF TWNETY PLUS FEATURES UNDER HIS BELT, NOW WITH HIS TECHNICAL ABILITY IN THE DIGITAL REALM, AND HIS LOVE OF PHOTOGRAPHY HE EMBARKS ON A JOURNEY OF CREATIVE DISCOVERY TO CAPTURE NOT ONLY A PERSON IN A PHOTOGRAPH, BUT TO EVOKE A EMOTION THROUGH HIS MEDIUM.

WHEN HE'S NOT WORKING IN FILM, HE IS STUDYING PHOTOGRAPHY, AND PRACTICING HIS CRAFT, NOW BASED IN SINGAPORE HE HOPES TO FURTHER HIS CREATIVE ENDEAVOURS.
