About Steven Sparks

STEVEN SPARKS Photographic Art

It's really amazing how many choices we now have in our shooting and processing workflow to enhance what a scene may have to offer and express our artistic preferences. My artistic preference is simply 'Photographic fine art to enjoy and live with’. And what I enjoy living with has no limited range of content or style; but it will generally evoke positive feelings, like peace, beauty, harmony, love, fun, etc. My creativity has been influenced by a few contemporary art photographers like Steve Barclay and Andy Katz; and also a by some of the world’s renowned painters, especially American painters from the late 19th century like George Inness. I love George's tonality.

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, Nikon School, University of South Florida, and with a commercial art photographer in Honolulu. 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.
