I recently met with Stephen Reid a NJ photographer that we have been following on IG. We connected with him after receiving a pic of his daughter Jordyn. His work is awesome! You want to see his diverse work (maternity, new born, family, birthdays, celebrity, and more). In meeting with him I learnt that he is a very talented person with many gifts (artist, athlete, drummer, model, graphic artist, photographer, new author, motivational speaker). As a young man, he enjoyed drawing and while only in fourth grade he attended a college level class. This experience help to shape his knowledge for shading, color, negative space, and overall composition.
During high school Stephen was both a football and track star. This allowed him the opportunity to attended Seton Hall University (South Orange, NJ) on a full track scholarships. His major was graphic & web design. After graduation, he began his professional career working for a graphic & web design company. He was impacted in a downsize and thus began freelancing.
Something interesting about Stephen is that after college he taught himself how to play the drums and is a professional drummer that is very active playing weekly. When I asked about how he was introduced to photography I learnt that he was a model and would often share with photographers how to get great pics. This was a natural for him with his artistic knowledge. Modeling lead to him embracing photography which he also taught himself (some thanks to YouTube). He began with taking images of objects using the concepts that he was familiar with from drawing. Next, friends and family. The feedback was positive from friends and family and launched his photography career that blends perfectly with his graphic & web design business. Since it is Fathers Day we picked some awesome pics with dads. Check Stephen out to see his diverse work:).
Stephen has been a photographer for seven years and weddings are one of his specialties. Check out his IG page 4ever.chosen.weddings.
It is clear the Stephen embraces doing things with the spirit of excellence. When we asked about photography and what it means to him he shared “Photography is an art form of expression capturing special moments in a unique way”. Check out his IG page shotbysteph.
