About Me

Specializing in fashion and glamour, Steve Shams  has built  his reputation among the famous and yet-to-be-discovered beauties of Los Angeles for his ability to capture the magnificence and charm in intimate stills.

Steve loves fashion photography.  Colors, lighting, makeup, wardrobe . . . and all the beauty and talent that come together to make a perfect commercial picture.

Creating fashion stills for catalog, advertising, web, and editorial, is Steve's specialty.  His work has been in "LA Family" and "LA Bride" magazines, plus many formal & casual wardrobe ads and catalogs.

For portraits, Steve understands the art in natural beauty. He works with models to create the appropriate portfolios to help them reach their goals and aspirations.  With his wife, a makeup artist and fashion advisor, he works selectively with models that show the greatest promise.
