Climbing a giant redwood, getting licked by a Brazilian tapir and slogging through waist-deep mud are just part of the job for Steve. He received his degree in conservation and wildlife management from the University of Maryland, and his focus remains on wildlife, threats to the natural environment and constructive solutions to environmental problems. He managed the Visual Resources in Ornithology (VIREO) collection at the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia before beginning his own freelance photojournalism career. His photographs are used by TV networks, newspapers and magazines, including ABC, Audubon, BBC, BBC Wildlife, California Wild, Defenders, Discover, E, Earthwatch, Environment, Harrowsmith, International Wildlife, the New York Times, Ranger Rick, Scientific American, Science, Sierra, Sunset and the Washington Post. His photographs have also been exhibited at the Field Museum of Natural History, the Academy of Natural Sciences and the Smithsonian.
