Do you know…
Steven Cook is an award-winning landscape, wildlife, and nature photographer. His work is “picture perfect” and quite exquisite!
Steve’s love for nature began as a young child in the woods and waters of his native Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. His lens now captures the breathtaking images of the Pocono Mountains where he resides.
While he tries to keep it realistic, Steve does use “creative license” when it comes to using software to develop his photos. “I attempt to make the image to be what I saw and felt in the moment that I snapped the frame. A scene with very difficult lighting can confound the best equipment and technique. The software can make up the difference”.
Having no formal training, Steve states that experience has been his best teacher! “You learn to take better images by making a lot of bad ones!” He claims that his biggest motivation when shooting is to try to make the next picture better than the last. “Nature is unpredictable, so it doesn’t always work out but continuous improvement has always been my goal!”
Steve placed 1st for his photo “Little Niagara” in 2015 Spring Color Peoples Photographic Society International Competition. He won 2nd place for “Watkins Glen” in 2-13 Peoples Photographic Society International Competition and “Stone Arch of Winter” was published in 2013 Winter Edition of Green Door Magazine.
