His portfolio covers anything from wildlife, landscapes, communities, music, and city life to agriculture.
WHEN JACARANDAS BLOOM IN HARARE
“My father once said, we come from a background of storytelling and we should always remember that”, says Steven. His work not only captures the amazing unrefined and naturally beautiful Zimbabwe, but also tells a powerful and positive story about the country, it’s people and their daily living, enticing you along the way. Each and every image has an inspiring angle and makes you appreciate the true beauty and simplicity everyday life has to offer.

Steven has been named one of the top 5 African photographers you should follow on Instagram. “Everyone is constantly telling a story, even if they’re not talking or don’t actually have anything to say”. Have patience and capture your subject in their true form, sometimes it’s best they don’t see you”, says Steven.
