Steve Simonsen
I was first introduced to Steve Simonsen’s photography when a friend literally dragged me to see a slide show that was being presented at the Cinnamon Bay Campground. I resisted because to me, the term “slide show” conjured up memories of an evening spent viewing slides of a family function or a trip to Europe – “There’s Uncle Al and that’s the Eiffel Tower”. Well, Steve and his wife Janet had put together a slide show that wasn’t like that at all. Everyone in attendance at the outdoor amphitheater sat spellbound, transfixed by the cascade of powerful images and the well-chosen music that accompanied them. After the presentation, I looked around at the audience – there wasn’t a dry eye to be seen.Steve’s work has been featured in prestigious magazines such as Caribbean Travel & Life, Islands, Playboy’s Sexy Swimsuits, and National Geographic Traveler. Recently, Steve has published Living Art, a photographic study of the natural beauty of St. John. For more information visit www.stevesimonsen.com.
