Welcome to the award winning photography of Steve Brimm. Inside the galleries you will find moving and awe inspiring images of Humans, Landscapes and wildlife from around the globe. Thank you for visiting!
As my time has always been spent out-of-doors; backpacking, paddling, just looking & learning about natural things, I began photographing as an extension of this interest, Whether watching squall lines march across Lake Superior or observing Loons caring for their chicks, I felt compelled to share these incredible moments. However, my purpose for creating images evolved into promoting the idea that we are inextricably connected with the great circle of nature. I believe it is our responsibility as stewards to foster the health of the land & all living creatures- everything which is also part of this circle.
Being entirely self taught was certainly the long way around, but I believe the unhurried time spent learning allowed me to develop a unique style. I concentrate on light, texture & color as well as the juxtaposition of all three, rather than simply finding a subject to photograph. For the past six years most of my photographic efforts have been in the Lake Superior basin & the northern forest beyond, with a special emphasis on the lake itself. Having grown up on the water, I have always been drawn to these reservoirs of knowledge, moods & biodiversity. Although I'm called an 'artist', I feel that nature is the artist & that I simply interpret it's beauty. This respect for the natural world reflects the deep rooted affection I have for the land & I hope is evident in the images I capture on film.
Steve lives on the wind swept shores of the Keweenaw Peninsula. His award winning photography is published regularly in regional and national magazines & calendars, corporate collections and a coffee table book "Michigan's Upper Peninsula, Spirit of Place"
Please note that this is a new web gallery and is in progress. Images will be added regularly.
