Steven Shires is best known for documenting bar/community events since 1998 in Ft Lauderdale
He has worked in several Caribbean countries as well as many USA destinations.
Steven is currently the official photographer for The South Florida Symphony Orchestra – as well as several other prominent clients.
His early works showed more image manipulation – as the concept of digital capture, became the norm after film photography. Steven mostly now, simply records personalities, places, and things that a lot of people overlook. One thing that makes Steven particularly happy is to surround himself with photos of his family. The joy of those images keeps him strong. If he can give one image to one person who holds onto it for decades then he has done his job.
