First working with a preeminent Canadian economic think-tank, and then breaking out on his own, it wasn’t until he found an SLR camera on an autumn hiking adventure in the Gatineau Park that he took his first photograph. This new found craft quickly became his passion and before long he established himself as a respected fine art photographer. Steven considers himself to be a purist; his approach is to capture untouched natural beauty with a large format camera. He does not believe in any manipulation of his images. All of Steven’s images are full frame from the camera and are not cropped. To capture the images, Steven travels to remote locations around the world with his wife Joni, hiking sometimes 20 kilometers to an inaccessible region and working with impossible patience. Sometimes he will visit a location year after year to capture just the right light, often waiting long periods for the rain to stop, the wind to still, the fog to lift. Friedman’s imagery transports the viewer behind the lens of his camera to explore remote and inaccessible regions through his eyes, awakening a sense of wonder and appreciation for the natural world.
