About Steve Ladner
My journey as a photographer began in the early 1970s, right out of college. Though I was not formally trained in photography, photography had been my passion starting with photographing my friends in college, the streets of New York City, and the cultural events of the time. An art director friend suggested that I look at some fashion magazines after seeing some of my early photos, and inspired by what I saw, I knew that if I studied those images, I could replicate them in my own style. I borrowed some clothing from young designers and boutiques and went out into the country side with a group of friends to take pictures. That became my training, as I quickly learned what worked and what did not.
Model agencies liked my work and sent me models, and I was off and running. Within months I had a portfolio and after showing my photos to some fashion editors in New York City, I got my first professional job shooting for GQ Magazine. Over the next year, I continued to evolve and to develop my style. After a few more fashion magazines saw my work and hired me, I caught on and a 25 plus year career as a fashion photographer was launched. While living in New York City, I shot for magazines like GQ, Harpers Bazaar, Seventeen Magazine, French Vogue, Town and Country, Modern Brides, The New York Times Magazine and advertising campaigns for beauty clients such as Revlon, Almay, Estee Lauder, and Chanel.
For the sake of adventure and to broaden my experience, I moved to Paris, France and spent 7 years shooting for French Vogue and other publications there.Four years ago I moved to a home in Saint Peters Village, Pennsylvania. I now shoot for a variety of local clients, as well as regular clients in NYC, CT, NJ and PhiladelphiaI have been devoting more time recently to shooting fine art photography projects that involve transforming objects, natural elements, landscapes and cityscapes into iconic expressionistic images. The images here are more than documentary moments. They embody my intention to evoke an emotional response and express the essence, the isness of the place or thing, and to create a visceral and tactile experience.
