The glow of backlit Saguaro cactus spines … the blue-cool color of shadows contrasting the warmth of the sun … a roofline tinged with the rose of a sunset sky … are all examples of the beauty found in the desert's natural light. For the last 15 years of Steve Thompson's photo career, he has been capturing this elusive light. It is a passion that may require taking the perfect shot within a three-minute window of a setting sun or waking before dawn to capture the softer light of the first moments of morning. Steve's dedication to natural light has given him the skills needed to bring architecture to life without the use of added lighting. Creating images that faithfully reproduce the true feel of a room with as much drama and romance as the most complicated, lighted set, but with a quicker turn-time and lower price. Take a moment to browse the galleries on this site and you will immediately see the warmth and authenticity of Steve's images. His work has a quality you won't find anywhere else and it is a result of being devoted to his driving philosophy, so aptly termed, Natural Light Imaging.
