About Steven Sparks

STEVEN SPARKS PHOTOGRAPHY

ARTIST STATEMENT:
‘Photographic fine art to live with’ is what I generally strive to create. In other words I prefer images I might enjoy hanging on the walls of my home; as opposed to images that are targeted for contests (very unusual or high-impact art), or journalistic type photos; though I definitely appreciate all types of art, if it is good. Artistically I have been influenced by a few creative art photographers like Steve Barclay and Andy Katz; and more so by some of the world’s renowned painters, especially American painters from the late 19th century like George Inness.

BIO:
Beginning with high school photo classes using twin lens reflex cameras I have always engaged in some type of advanced photographic work, as my primary careers have allowed. My photographic experience includes photojournalism, aerial photography, portraits, weddings, advertising, and especially creating and selling photographic fine art. My main careers included 24 years of flying with the Army, National Guard and Coast Guard. I enjoyed a shorter second career with USAA. I am married with three children and one granddaughter. Following my last assignment flying C-130’s out of USCG Air Station St Pete/Clearwater we decided to remain in the Tampa Bay area. My wife and I now reside in north Tampa.

I am mostly a self-taught photographer though I have completed some formal training with North Kansas City High School, DOD Public Affairs School, , with a commercial art photographer in Honolulu, Nikon School, and the University of South Florida. I am a member of the North Tampa Arts League, Florida Center for Creative Photography and the Florida Museum of Photography Art. Apart from my online portfolio, I display and sell my photo art at various local venues.
