AboutSteve Steve Temple discovered his love for photography on his 6th birthday when he was given a Kodak Instamatic camera by his grandparents. He took pictures of everything from rain covered leaves to the family dogs. Fast forward 30 or so years, and Steve is still drawing from that same passion to create commercial still life images for advertising and other uses. Taking the place of the family dogs, Steve now photographs electronics, sports equipment, home goods, fashion accessories, and more out of his studio located in the heart of Portland, Oregon. With a meticulous eye that sees product as objects of high art and an acuity for solving visual problems, Steve employs his extensive knowledge of light to create graphic compositions rich in drama and texture.
