Steve Smith (photobyss)

Steve has been an avid fan of 'the visual arts' since his teenage years when he purchased his first Agfamatic camera from the Sears catalog with money he made from part time jobs. Having spent many years as an avid photography buff, Steve made the switch to video around 1992, where he ran a small video studio, up until late 2000, when a career opportunity took him to Hong Kong for two years. After spending many months travelling around Asia armed with a new camera, the lure of digital brought Steve back to photography as his main interest.

As 'Principal Partner', Steve founded World of Stock in 2003 and has been improving and growing it ever since. Steve, his wife Judy and two crazy Boxer dogs, Kali and Bodhi, now reside in Port Coquitlam, BC, Canada, near Vancouver. Steve is getting involved with the community and also does commercial and event photography as well as design and website development.

Steve has been very fortunate to have traveled extensively throughout Asia, Europe the South Pacific and North America.

Steve's Favorite quote;

"I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free" - Michelangelo

"I see this as being so synonymous to photography" , says Steve. "There are hidden treasures in the most unlikely places if you have the vision to see them".
