A PHOTOGRAPHER WITH AN EYE FOR DESIGN
Steve Maya Photography & Design is a nascent media & events production company located in New York. It is the culmination of all the acquired interests and skills of its owner. Steve has been described as a multifaceted, multi-talented, multimedia juggernaut. He uses his combined skills in photography, video, music, graphic, web and print design to enhance his work, display versatility and adaptability to meet the needs of his clients.
Steve was born and raised in New York City and showed an avid interest in art and music since childhood. Comic books, music, album covers, fashion, video games, trips to New York's famous art museums all helped spark his imagination to create. He discovered black and white film photography in high school. Shooting for the high school yearbook, Steve valued the importance of the photographic medium as way to record and preserve history. Continuing his education at the School of Visual Arts and Fashion Institute of Technology, he fully embraced photography as a true form of art.
After a couple of failed attempts to start his own studio, Steve left the photography business altogether during the advent of digital cameras. He reinvented himself as a graphic designer. Steve satiated his desire to work in fashion after working as a senior designer for many years in the women's intimate apparel industry. With the encouragement of his wife and a brand new digital camera, he began shooting the streets of NYC. Street photography grew into travel, architecture, fashion catalogs, events and ultimately weddings.
The rest is history, as displayed in the photographs and graphic design works on this web site.
