Continuing with The Artists Series 2012, it is my pleasure to introduce Stephen C Johnston, Fine Art Photographer. His work is truly incredible; having been influenced by the likes of the great photographers Ansel Adams and Alfred Stieglitz.
Steve has been awarded Best of Show in the Kansas City Arts Commission Photography Competition. His work is included in both private and in corporate collections. Steve's work has also been shown and sold through the Nelson Gallery of Art in Kansas City, among other galleries mentioned below.
Steve, when did you first become interested in photography?
When I received a Kodak Brownie Hawkeye camera for Christmas when I was 14 years old. When I was about 40, I got very serious and attended KC Art Institute to study photography and design. ( He had also been involved in the Santa Fe Photographic Workshops)

Do you have favorite subjects or favorite sites that you visit and photograph?
I love interesting and beautiful landscapes, as well as architecture. I have worked extensively along the California coastline, the deserts around Santa Fe and Taos, the Kansas Flint Hills, Washington DC, and of course Kansas City.

What inspires you the most to go out with your camera and create artistic photography?
I love to capture an instant in time of something Mother Nature did, and how people have interacted with it.

One of my favorite of your works (which is in my art collection) is a juxtaposition of parts of the Country Club Plaza here in Kansas City. How did that come about?
That image is something I visualized early one Holiday season. All three elements are icons of the Plaza.
Steve do you have any upcoming exhibits or where have you shown your art recently?
My work has been shown recently at the Artists Coalition Gallery and Buttonwood Art Space in Kansas City and the Camera Obscura Gallery in Denver. I am in a show of black and white works in March at the Western Wyandotte County Library. I am working on other showings later in the year.
Thank you so much Steve for your insight into Fine Art Photography!
You are very welcome. I am honored that you would want my work to visit your site. Thanks you very much.
