Stephen Lewis is a photographer originally from California's Central Valley.

           I moved to Santa Barbara when I was 3 years old and I’ve been enamored with the city ever since.  I made my first photographs in elementary school with a waterproof 35mm point-and-shoot film camera.  Digital quickly supplanted film and I've been in love with the freedom and efficiency of digital imaging ever since.

            I specialize in photographing people and their passions.  Photography means "to draw with light", it is a powerful conduit for artistic expression and its greatest power comes from drawing an emotional reaction from the viewer. My style is vibrant, crisp and luminous. 

            I run a client-oriented business.  Ultimately, my goal is to make you, your business or your products look absolutely stunning.  This is what excites me and keeps me going.  Every day, I strive to tell my clients' stories in the most engaging, professional and exciting way possible through the visual language of color and light.  We live in a media-driven world where your image is like an ambassador to your audience, I can help you look your best.  Let's create.
