Born in London in 1956, award winning-photographer Steven Taylor discovered photography at the age of ten, using a camera he found at a local landfill site.
Self-taught as a photographer, Taylor worked at many jobs, studying horticulture and starting his own business as a landscape gardener while at the same time experimenting with macro photography and the creation of plant images.
In 1994 his receipt of an award in a major photographic competition resulted in a career change and soon he was working full-time as a commercial photographer for one of the biggest agents in London.
He gave up commercial work in 2005 to concentrate on fine art photography. His preference is to employ traditional methods, using large format cameras and film, to create limited edition prints on fibre-based papers and applying toning processes to many.
Traversing the landscape in the UK and abroad for his work, he's now based in Norfolk, living with his partner, artist Jacqui Fenn.
