At about the same time that I purchased my first 35mm SLR camera, a friend introduced me to backpacking in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Since then, my home town of Las Vegas has provided a convenient starting point for photography trips to the high country of the mountain west, as well as the unique landscapes of the desert southwest. Over the years, in addition to 35mm, I have used Hassleblad, Mamiya, and Pentax medium format film camera systems.

I very much enjoyed and appreciate my time at Rocky Mountain School of Photography for helping me make the transition from film to digital photography. Discovering the many benefits brought about by digital technology revitalized my passion and allowed me to better and more effectively control the process from start to finish - capture through presentation.

My work is currently represented by Poison Creek Furniture & Design in Park City, Utah. Previously, my work has been presented by galleries in Utah, Montana, and Texas. I have been fortunate to have the support of numerous private and corporate clients including: Fine Art at Work, Morgan Stanley, Redstone Health Center, Investment Counsel Company, Nevada Title, and Rachel’s Kitchen among others. My work has been published in Cornell College Report, Mountain Express Magazine, and Photographic Society of America Journal among others.

Artist Statement

Photography has been about visiting special places. Each image represents a story; some long, some short, but all memorable. The images bring back the moment – senses heightened, sounds of the place, the touch of the breeze, friends sharing the experience, my desire to soak it all in.

Steve Casey Images on Aluminum Prints

In addition to being printed on Metallic Paper and Archival Canvas, my images may also be printed on Metal. Images printed on Metal represent a new art medium for preserving photos by infusing dyes directly into the specially coated aluminum sheet. Because the image is infused into the surface and not on it, the images take on an almost magical luminescence.

These are durable archival prints, without glass. These prints are ready to hang. Images printed with this process will last for generations. Like any fine art print, this print should not be exposed to direct sunlight or high outdoor temperatures. This print is waterproof and has an ultra-hard scratch resistant coating. The archival value of a print should be judged not only by its resistance to degradation by U.V. light and ozone exposure, but also to moisture and surface damage. When these factors are brought into the equation, this process is an excellent way to preserve images.
