Everything is major when it comes to accomplished photographer, graphic artist and make up artist Steven D. Hill. By applying the perfect combination of vision, talent, and dedication he has become internationally recognized in his field. He is known for his innovation, exceptional quality, and the care and thought he put into every piece of his work. It doesn't take much to see that he has an innate gift for creating beauty.
The Dallas, Tx based artist received his initial training from El Centro Community College in 2006 where he studied Interactive Media Development, as well as Fashion Design and Make Up for the Stage. "I started off creating graphics way before I decided to become a photographer" he stated." And this gave him some what of a competitive edge by understanding the tools of Photoshop, and the knowledge to retouch photos and create using typography. His skill in make-up was developed several years later, which proved to be a helpful by allowing him to do for self, and express his visions as he saw.
As his talent and skills began to harmonize with ambition and vision, he began to live up to the meaning of Sooak Photography, "Steven One Of A Kind." He now uses his own name, but nevertheless the "one-man-shop" continues to embody that uniqueness. With the effective use of the internet and word of mouth, Steven D. Hill branded himself and gained the respect of his peers. "The foundation of fashion, pop culture, and media combined" is the phrase he uses to describe his art. With this growth came a logo change to a heart, which symbolizes the spiritual, emotional, moral and intellectual core of a human being. "My work speaks highly of me as a person. So with all this said the logo clearly states that I truly put my all into my work. It's my way of life!"
Steven is the missing link between the past and the present, and this visionary has managed to create a space for his work that sits in neither realm. What he offers is a glimpse of the future. His photos practically declare, "this is what could be."
