Ellen and Steve are life partners and collaborators in fine art photography.  Their photographic interests are centered in California but span multiple continents.  Their co-productions are often muted, quietly drawing the viewer into the often complex and tension filled interactions between humans and the natural world.  Their work draws inspiration from a host of artists, and evidence Steve’s eye for geometry and light, elevated by Ellen’s interest in memory, meaning and color.
