My name is Glenn Steinle. I am an artist based on Long Island, NY. I began working as an artist professionally in 1996; painting wall murals for local businesses and homes.
While attending college, I enrolled in a photography class to fill a gap between my painting classes. Learning the process of developing film and seeing the final print made me realize how much photography is an art. I began taking more photography classes and ended up with two concentrations (painting and photography) upon graduating in 2001. My work is influenced by artists such as Johannes Vermeer, Salvador Dali, Richard Avedon, Ansel Adams, and Imogen Cunningham.
My photographic approach is to capture the true moments, with minimum direction on poses as possible. I want the moment to be as natural as can be. I’m not just photographing you; the background and light are just as important when creating that perfect feeling of the moment.
In 2008 I discovered a passion for event photography after photographing a wedding for a friend. Being able to document someone’s special moments for a lifetime of memories can be very rewording. I love what I do and consider myself lucky.
