Self PortraitsAfter wandering for a few decades, I now call New York City “home.” Born in England,raised in Bermuda and educated in America, I have spent the last twenty years clutching both camera and passport. Although trained as a lawyer, with an Honors B.A. from the University of Florida and a J.D. from the University of Miami School of Law, photography and travel remain my inspiration. There are few things that offer such experiences and it is through the viewfinder of a 35mm and digital SLR that I have seen much of the world. From night operations in the mountains of Afghanistan with the French Foreign Legion to being interrogated by Greek Intelligence services to running the streets of New York City with Black Bloc anarchists, my camera has fueled my vision-quest. Photography has made of me a more earnest traveler. Through it, I have learned patience, humility and compassion. These
virtues, I seek to convey through my work.

Extensively traveled in North America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East, my work has been featured by various international clients including the New York Times, National Geographic, Lonely Planet, Insight Travel Guides, DK, History Channel, Men’s Journal among others. My images have similarly been displayed on the walls of galleries in Sydney, Rome, New York, Lisbon, London and San Francisco. I have completed an internship with the world-renowned VII Photo Agency, continue to do freelance photojournalism (represented by Corbis), travel and tourism work (represented by Getty Images), architectural photography and am also an instructor at Digital Photo Academy in New York. Professional affiliations include membership in the National Press Photographer’s Association with media accreditation by the NYPD, the United Nations, N.A.T.O. and the White House.

Lots of people seem to hang up if our welcome recording comes on instead of a live voice, but we promise to return your message within a day or two if you leave one with your name and number.  It would be even better if you included your e mail address as well as the date and city of the class you are considering.  If leaving a voice mail message is not your thing, please email us at DPAbooking@digitalphotoacademy.com or Richard@digitalphotoacademy.com.

    Hi Steve,
    “I cannot thank you enough for the excellent class you gave on Sunday. I came away from that class with so much knowledge and understanding on how to work my camera – I was amazed and I can’t wait to start using my camera on “M” !!!
    You are an awesome instructor! Thanks for everything!”

    “I just wanted to reply as a follow up – I took the Intro to DSLR class yesterday with Steven Greaves as a “do-over” to my Intro to Digital Cameras class. I had to let you know that this class was excellent and was certainly worth giving DPA another try. Steven was great – I am a beginner and the other student is more advanced and I felt he catered to both of us. He actually physically showed us the settings on our cameras, what everything did, what we should be looking at from both a technical and creative standpoint, and really gave a well-rounded overview of the DSLR. He is clearly a talented photographer, but a modest one – showing us his images as helpful examples rather than self-promotion (which was my issue with the last instructor). He knew the technical terms and was able to explain them clearly, in an easy-to-understand way for me, as I am very new to the DSLR terminology. He took us out to try different types of shots, showing us how the different settings affect the image, was able to give clear step-by-step instructions on how to take a great image and what settings to use and how to tell when to adjust them. Overall, it was a VERY valuable four hours filled with great information.

    Just had to let you know that I’m really satisfied with this make-up class and appreciate the offer. I feel like I got a lot out of it and will be looking into additional classes.”

    Thanks,
    Jamie

    “Hi Steven,

    Thank you for the workshop and for answering all my questions (even stealing a little extra time). I had a great time and learned new things in order to get better pictures. Specially I got a real interest in “control my camera” instead of being controlled by it. Of course I’ll buy a reflex to really start doing it.

    I still can’t shut a leading line. I find it so difficult. It’s a real challenge and so I’ll keep working on it.

    Looking forward to attend new workshops.”

    “Thank you. I just got in and, guess what (YOU TOLD ME SO) I fell in love with the RAW pictures better than the jpeg ones. Took a lot less “rubbing” and “editing.” And, for the record, they were shot in MANUAL MODE. Thanks teacher!”

    “Hi Steve, Thank you!! The class was exactly what I needed. You have taught me to be the basics and from that I will continue to build my skills. I am not as “afraid” to use the manual setting.

    I would definitely recommend the class as well as you as the instructor.

    Thanks again”

    “Thanks, Steven. Today’s class really started to change the way I take photos. I used to be one of those people who just point and shoot and call it a day. I like to do challenging things in life, therefore I am going to keep practicing. My camera was given to me as a gift back in April and I wish I had put more effort into learning/playing around with it, but late is better than never.”
