  1. Hello Steven! Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed speaking with you tonight. You seem like a real positive and down-to-earth guy and I’m so glad to hear that an individual, such as yourself, is using your talent and knowledge to enhance the lives of learning ones. And I must say, your work is absolutely beautiful. That b/w portrait of the old man with bushy eyebrows is too great. He looks like a real character. The lightning shot that depicts a guy holding out his point-and-shoot is hilarious. Here in Savannah, I love taking pictures of people taking pictures (specifically tourists taking pictures). I’m also impressed by your photoshop skill. You don’t overabuse it, instead using it to truly enhance. Beautiful, beautiful work. Keep it up. I thank you again for your advice and insight. I will definitely be checking out the book, “VisionMongers” and the festival of the photo. All the best!

    Thank you for your Makkovik work. I am writing a facebook novel in which the town plays a major role, and your work has helped.
