Born in Glasgow in 1956 Steve grew up in Dumfries and studied at art school. Upon leaving, he became an apprentice electrician for a brief period, as he was uncertain of where his artistic path led. In 1973, Carlisle College offered him a placement, where, during the second year, he opted for a change in medium, preferring photography to painting. He found black & white formats extremely inspiring and exciting to work with, seeing himself in fact as an artist but utilising a camera rather than paint.
Upon leaving college he moved to London where he did freelance work for teen magazines, which led to work for Vogue in 1977, where his work was included in the ‘Pink Punk Book’ published in 1978.
