• What I believe.

    Positive, focused intention combined with decades of experience and collaboration means everything and anything is achievable.


    I love the art of business.

    It’s that simple. I am very fortunate to have been working in this industry since 1990 with many fantastic clients and brands. And it's the art of business that has kept me busy through changing times and markets.


    Need a fresh perspective?

    One of the best things you can do is bring in someone from the outside to look in. Getting feedback and a different point of view on what it is your are doing - selling - branding - marketing could be all you need.


    I can help you develop your overall business plan by defining measurable objectives, creative guidance, estimating projects and create promotions to motivate your clients.



    My experience is unique.

    a 26 year career that has provided me a very diverse background and experience.

    There is nothing more powerful than a well developed portflio

    "What is your website?" - It's the first question everyone asks. Lets get your best work on display, from web to print and make an outstanding impression.

    Working on a series that seems to have plateaued or need help concepting new ideas and taking old ones to new limits.



    Effective marketing requires a plan and execution

    Creating and adapting a marketing plan within a budget, that's effective from AWARENESS to ADVOCACY. Understanding the Target Zone when bidding on work. How to follow up and stay connected that builds Loyalty.



    Knowing yourself defines your brand

    How to differentiate your company and attract new clients through brand awareness, identity and loyalty. You are your own Brand and that isn't what you deliver to clients but rather how they see you.

  • Accolades

    My clients and I have collaborated on great ideas, campaigns and brands. Here's what they would like to tell you about the experience.



    “The work is amazing as usual – It’s a shame I rarely have time to sit back and reflect on the actual images our team works so hard to make.

    Thanks again.”

    Randy Morris, Sr. Art Director, McCann Worldwide


    'I wanted to let you know I’ve been featured in International Musician and on the front and back covers too.

    I have received dozens (I’m sure it will grow to hundreds) of messages about it and EVERYONE has commented on how GREAT the pictures are!!!'

    You’re the best.”

    Andy Martin, Musician


    “I highly recommend Steve Anderson Photography. Steve and his team are absolutely unmatched in attention to detail and the willingness to go the extra mile. I found Steve to be very easy to work with and, his collaborative approach, essential in delivering the best quality shots. We (my client and I) were blown away by the final shots that Steve delivered. His unique style of food photography was unexpected and provided our clients with something new, different and refreshing. On top of that, Steve was fabulous with our client! He has the ability to explain and guide clients throughout the entire process-making my job a breeze. I look forward to working with Steve and his team on our next food shoot!”

    Danny Getachew, Senior Acct. Executive, Vitro Robertson:


    Incredibly supportive and available, Steve and his staff created the perfect studio session scenario. Instantly at ease, I tapped into a never-before-seen vulnerability, which gave way to some truly original pictures. I love them! Thanks for being so sensitive and capturing the real me. From on artist to another, you and your work are invaluable!”

    Mark Brunetz, TV Host and Designer, Style Network’s Clean House:


    “The website... nice job! The sequence of photos, both "editorial" and "studio", is nothing short of arresting. If the purpose is to get people to stop and say, "this is cool stuff... I want myself done up this way" or "I want a spread done like this on my client", I think it absolutely must be working.”

    Dan Ruchman, Ruchman & Associates:


    “Steve, the pics look absolutely fabulous. Kudos! It was indeed a short but very productive session with you. I thoroughly enjoyed the process. Your vibe was right on and your eye was perfect even down to that TV screen in the corner. Very excellent and I look forward to seeing what others you’ll be showing”.

    Andre Miripolsky, Artist:


    “Thank you for the work you did yesterday on our photo shoot. I know it was a lot to accomplish in a short period of time, but you captured everything we were looking for.”

    Patti Ammerman, Director of Marketing, Vanguard University:


    “I can't believe how talented Steve is! He managed to make even me look f*ckin' cool. I love the shots on the website! Thank you so much! It will be great to have some shots to use for press kits, etc.- (giving Steve full credit always, of course). Shyla loves the pics, too, and we're super excited if you two are still willing to shoot our "double" portraits. You and Steve are so nice to do all this. Thanks, again for everything. Talk to you soon.”

    Dave Lefner, Artist:


    “This is really amazing stuff…

    Phil Cooke, Author

    “Hey I got the pictures this morning.... they’re WONDERFUL!!!
    I shared ‘em with everyone and then had to make a midmorning food run. My mouth was watering. Thanks again for excellent work and please pass on our salutations and appreciation to Steve. Bravo!
