now has a new blog about night photography
. During the 1970's, Steve taught the first college-level course on night photography (at the Academy of Art College in San Francisco), and was instrumental in launching the whole night photography movement here in northern California.

Last summer I had the opportunity to record an interview with Steve
for my night photography documentary film The Night of the Living Photographers
(note: TNOTLP is no longer available on the previous site: StudentFilms.com... but I plan to re-release it on YouTube within the next few weeks). Steve was also a guest lecturere at the Mono Lake Workshop, last summer.
If you haven't already seen Steve's website, be sure to check it out. I especially like the photos of the industrial areas of San Francisco, most of which look completely different today.
