A Native New Yorker, Steve Ragland, has refined the art of romancing the soul of his subjects through his lens. His philosophy and goal: Working as a true fashion photographer all over the globe has allowed me to bring a cosmopolitan look to images for a diverse group of clients. Now working in Detroit, I continue to photograph for local and national clients. The beauty of knowledge and skills are what allows me to show other photographers how to achieve a luxury look and feel to images using tools readily available in any local store and being able to create the images in a small space. Commercial, editorial, and portrait clients are facing ever-tightening budgets and these skills are much sought after. The goal is to have fun be creative and to produce refined images in less time with less money spent on equipment, set design and post-production – did I mention have fun be creative. Only you can stop you so keep on keeping on… Make it Happen!
