My father ‘Arthur Steel’ was a renowned Fleet Street Photographer and because of his career I grew up surrounded by cameras. From as early as seven years of age I would be helping him print black and white images in his darkroom. Later on in life I studied Photography at College and became a Window Cleaner throughout this period to help finance myself. After a short stint of unpaid work experience I was offered a full time job at Holborn Studios (London’s largest Photographic Studio). I worked there for two years as a studio assistant and then assisted as a freelancer for a further eight years travelling extensively around the globe on assignments working with some of the world’s leading Photographers. Then finally became a Photographer in my own right and have managed to earn a living from my camera ever since.
