South Carolina SC Picture Project Steve Rich
Steve in His Own Words ...
Before moving to Aiken
in 1966, I lived up and down the East Coast as my Dad was in the Navy. We settled in Aiken because of the climate.
I am the oldest of five children. I am very happily married – 30+ years – with two daughters who are both married, educated and are a huge help when called on. I also have three grandchildren!
WORK & HOBBIES:
I currently work full time at Savannah River Site and have been there for the last 32 years. When not at work I enjoy camping, boating and the great outdoors with my family and especially my grandchildren.
"The best resides within the photographer, not the camera."
I love Charleston
, Port Royal
and of course Aiken. I also love traveling South Carolina back roads capturing images never before seen.

The Man Behind the Lens ...
I started using a camera at the age of 10. My first 35mm camera was purchased in 1980 and was a Pentax K-1000. I was hooked on photography from then on. For the past six years I have been learning and having fun with post-processing applications such as Photoshop Elements, Photoshop and Lightroom. My images have been used commercially, as well as for fundraising posters and charity events.
I do have images on software-selling websites (Photoshop Elements, Topaz Labs, OnOne Software). I am a beta software tester. I am currently working with the Pigeon Forge Chamber of Commerce. My work has been featured in Photoshop Elements Techniques Magazine, and the highlight of my photography life was making its cover
! I have also been featured on Topaz Labs' website
and the OnOne Software website.
