Steve Jackle is an award winning Raleigh, NC based photographer who specializes in lifestyle portrait and event photography. He focuses on capturing the essence of people and events through images. His approach blends both an observer and director point of view in an effort to capture and enhance rather than totally invent the moment. The ultimate complement is when a customer says that image captures the personality of the subject or essence of the moment.
As a father of two wonderful daughters Sophia and Savannah, he understands the importance of capturing the various milestones in their lives before they fade into the past. Lifestyle photography is activity based where the intention is to capture families, couples, and individuals participating in their favorite activities. These timeless captures should be rooted in the activity backdrop and epitomize the relationships and emotions of the moment. Ideally, the resulting storytelling pieces should be a legacy that transcends to current and future generations and spark their emotions and memories of their storied past.
Steve’s photography is constantly evolving as he looks for new ways to creatively and technically enhance his craft. He is a member of the Professional Photographers of America and the Wedding Photographic Society(WPS) which provide various resources to assist in meeting this goal. Eventually, wedding photography will be part of Steve’s standard offering. He also collaborates with various peers and mentors like Frank Myers from Sweet Life Photo to share ideas to further improve his technical, composition, lighting, and post production photography skills.
