Steven Grover is a local photographer with a keen interest in the natural places of our region. Steven has been a photographer for over 25 years and produced images for several photo stock agencies for much of that time. His formal photographic education is a combination of courses at Focal Point in Vancouver, working at several photographic businesses and the self- study of inspiring photographers works. Steven feels that he was particularly influenced by the images of Canadian photographer/teacher Freeman Patterson and the late American photographer, Galen Rowell. Stevens work includes nature, travel, artistic nude and various commercial projects. Since 2018 Steven has begun painting in acrylics that are often inspired by his photography. Stevens original acrylic paintings, framed photographic prints, photo art cards and a new photo book of his Environmental Nude work are now available for viewing and purchase at Artique.
