To start off, he taught himself, but later decided that he wanted to study part time to get an even more in-depth understanding of photography. Photography is an expression and an interpretation of life. An art form that has a depth that reaches far into the subconscious. In his own words, it taught Stephen to appreciate life’s many wonders both great and small.
After a stint in TV and radio presenting, he built a network of contacts in various industries – one of which saw him join Nikon SA as a part-time trainer. With a passion for photography, people and education, he progressed to head of customer experience for the company involved with the technical department, customer engagement and training.
