WELCOME TO STEPHEN STEWART PHOTOGRAPHY
I grew up in Northern Ireland and began to be interested in photography in my late teens. I first became seriously interested in photography, when I attended an Introduction To Photography course with a friend, at Limavady College in 2000. This course taught me the basics of using a film SLR camera, processing B/W film and developing B/W prints in the darkroom. I continued to take photographs after I completed the course, but I wanted to learn more.
By chance I found out that the Upper Bann Institute in Lurgan had a HND in Photography & Digital Imaging course, so I decided to apply. I was accepted on the course and during these two years, I learnt an in-depth knowledge on how to photograph different situations from Landscape, to Documentary to Still Life Photography. I also was taught how to use digital cameras, digital imaging and multimedia software.
After graduating in 2004, I became a freelance photographer. Since then I was commissioned to produce photographs for two local books and also my work has been featured in various calendars. I have exhibited my prints in several exhibitions and examples of my work can be viewed or bought in local galleries. Based in Ballymena, I mainly specialize in Landscape and Architectural Photography within Northern Ireland. My style is very contemporary, working from either traditional methods or new digital technology. I also take on commissions either from the private or business sector.
I hope you enjoy my site and if you have any questions or comments you wish to make please do not hesitate to contact me.
