My photography of model Olivia is featured in a pictorial on the website MySweetOasis. I really love shooting with her because of her unique appearance and youthful qualities. We’ve collaborated since doing these images in 2017, but I still love this photo set.
It has been extremely gratifying to witness my photography gain a tremendous amount of exposure in the publicity campaign to promote a new photography book by my friend and mentor John Alexander Dersham.
The latest is this use of my portrait of John with his large format camera on the cover of Alabama Living magazine, the publication of electric cooperatives. They’ve featured my work several times in the past when I did freelance work for them, but this one is really special because I love knowing that some people may be inspired to purchase John’s book, “My Alabama John Dersham Photographs a State.”
Although I am primarily known for still photography, my love of the moving image continues to drive me. Despite extensive experience creating videos, I hesitate to brand myself too strongly as an expert at video. To me, if you call yourself that, you better be ready to deliver whatever a client can throw at you.
I’ve regularly used non-linear editing systems like Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, and Sony Vegas to splice imported video to create clips for YouTube or social media posts.
When I was a kid, I idolized filmmaker Steven Spielberg and wanted to become a film director. Life threw other circumstances my way, and after studying Mass Communications at Auburn University, I became a journalist/photographer/marketer who gets to do video as part of my jobs.

It may feel like the end of the 2018-19 school year will never arrive, but in spite of the still-chilly weather, Spring Break is nearly upon us with summer following closely behind. Senior Year… I know you are excited and nervous thinking about it. You’ll have a lot of things on your mind in the weeks and months ahead, including where to get your Senior Pictures done.
Here are 5 reasons to call Steven Stiefel to set up your Senior Portrait Photo Shoot this Spring:
My work appears on another new website, https://resilienceptchatt.com/.
It is the website for Meagan Moyers, a longtime physical therapist who has started her own practice as a postpartum physical therapist. You can find her at 400 East Main Street #140B in Chattanooga, on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. Very nice person!
In addition to photography, I performed SEO work on this website, developing the keywords that would form the backbone of the website and determine what content followed. This meant taking a deep dive into exploring pelvic floor dysfunction for pregnant and postpartum women. Not exactly something I was knowledgeable about, but that’s what I love about my work: I am constantly learning new things and translating industry jargon into everyday language so I can help others to discover them as well.
I woke up yesterday to a brilliant ball of fire in the sky…
As we approach my birthday month, February 2019 is now the wettest February on record for North Alabama, with 12.60″ of rain (as of Saturday, February 24th). February 23rd broke the record for the most rainfall recorded on that date.
It’s all been a bit much. Day after day of gray skies and torrential rain can do a number on the human psyche. Symptoms of winter Seasonal Affective Disorder often include oversleeping or difficulty waking up in the morning, nausea, and a tendency to over eat, often with a craving for carbohydrates, which leads to weight gain (yeah, we’ll blame it on that).
So when I woke up on Sunday the 24th and noticed thin slivers of orange light intruding upon my bedroom, I rushed outside and sat on my porch simply allowing the rays of sunlight to absorb into my skin. It felt wonderful…
The next thing I did was to grab my DSLR and iPhone and drive up to Little River Canyon National Preserve to get some shots of the rainwater making its way from the mountaintops, roaring with an awesome power. I recorded some video of this extraordinary sight.
