So whos this Barefoot Photographer.
Having kept a large and growing library of images, over a decade of travelling, events, people and abstract images, which are now being organised, sorted and processed so that they can be brought out of the cupboard (or hard drive in this case).
Steven has lived a different life to most, with a keen interest in how things work, and the want to go out and find new things, life hasnt been limited to the standard 3.1 kids, 1/4 acre block and the robotic career job.
With a background in computing, Steven has developed a knack for being able to decypher the confusing world of technology. This is what has led Steven down the path of helping a wide variety of people with their failing and broken techno gadgets.
Throughout his working life, Steven has developed skills in a variety of technical industries including Systems Adminstration, Web Development, Manufacturing, and Journalism & Photography. Differing roles have seen Steven work in a range of locations from the eastern cities to remote Australia.
With skills in a variety of industries and participation in a number of large projects. Fortune has seen the participation in the Home and Away web site project which had won a BAFTA Award through the company Hoodlum based in Brisbane for its ingenuity in Multimedia.

In recent years Steven has trekked through the Australian Outback covering the desert regions of four states, and the coastal regions of most of the continent from Broom to the eastern coast. Travelling in a 1975 Leyland Mini S, Steven tackled over six thousand kilometres of dirt roads and one hundred plus thousand kilometres of highways. Taking almost five years, and photographing not only the landscape travelled through, but also the skeptical that was driving a Mini into outback Australia.
Currently residing in Darwin, in the Northern Territory, Steven has plans to publish six books including two written books. This blog will start to introduce some of Stevens unique works as well as show off the beauty that is the Australian Outback and we look forward to your feedback, comments, and conversation.
Its simply as obvious as it sounds, youll see Steven 99% of the time wearing no shoes. Whether its walking down the streets, or climbing through Kakadu, there is something about being connected directly to the earth beneath your feet.
