Steven Steele Cawman
Steven lives in Poughquag, New York, and has enjoyed a career in photography, motion pictures, advertising and media for more than 25 years.
Specializing in travel and nature photography, Steven has travelled the world capturing images of the great outdoors, breathtaking scenery and the majesty of nature. Steven’s love of travel and desire to experience new cultures has inspired and driven him to capture the world to share it with viewers. His works are found in numerous private collections and his clients include the Semester at Sea Program, The Consulate General of Switzerland in New York and many publications, both locally and internationally.
"I travel extensively, keeping my eyes open to see what opportunities each location and day may bring. I enjoy the adventure of meeting people, experiencing new cultures and the chance to see the majestic beauty of Mother Nature around the world. My passion has driven me to explore the glacial caves of Iceland, follow polar bears in far north of Canada and follow the Great Migration across the Masai Mara in Africa.
It is my desire to capture and share these wonderful and sometimes threatened places, that may, if not protected and preserved, be lost forever. The challenges facing our planet and its inhabitants are many. These images of the world play a role in education, awareness and are a force for positive change. Habitats and wild places are disappearing, and the animals that depend on those places to survive are threatened by extinction. My photographs serve as an inventory of what we need to preserve and save, and not just as a time capsule snapshot of what once was. My goal is to capture images that will draw viewers in and hope that people will stop and think about the challenges facing our planet and take a moment to ask themselves what value they place on preserving the things they see."
