CRAFT MEETS COLLABORATION

Commercial photography truly is my life’s calling. I’m incredibly grateful to the brands and people around the world who trust me to reveal what is true, and share it in a light all their own.

My early design career prepared me well for commercial photography with well-honed instincts, an artistic vision and a collaborative spirit that can seen throughout my work and the partnership. Upholding high standards for the results and the service, I stay tuned to my clients’ goals.

I’m always aware of the essential details that transform a well-organized shoot into something more—an uplifting and memorable creative experience for all involved.

With a dream team of stylists, producers, assistants, designers and post production artists, I’m able to scale effortlessly for shoots of all sizes. Close to home or across the globe. Simple and straightforward or crossing new creative frontiers. Sometimes, it’s just me and the client. I love that too.

When I’m not shooting for clients or playing with my kids, you can find me checking surf conditions.

With a passion for surf life, I’ve spent the last 10 years capturing and journaling from Huntington Pier and the US Open of Surf to the pipeline of Oahu. The ocean is one of many wide open places I’m drawn to explore through the love of my craft. Check out my surf work here on the site or follow along on instagram at @estepworks_surf.
