About

Hello, and thanks for visiting. My name is Steve Cherry, and I really enjoy creating interesting and unique imagery. I originally began experimenting with photography as a scuba diver. and had some minor success there, but found less and less time to actually dive, so I began shooting film and digital on dry land.

I learned everything I know from other, better photographers than myself, and a little bit from the right side of my brain. God gets all the credit for His diverse and never-ending collection of subject matter, and I am richly blessed to be able to record it this way. I would love to see your comments, cheers and jeers, and I encourage you to ask questions if you think I might be able to help you out.

Most of the photos on my blog, or in my portfolio are available for print or license in various sizes and crops. Prints are done in matte or glossy format, and are printed on Fuji Crystal Archive paper. Print prices range from $15.00 to $50.00 for most common print sizes (shipping is separate). Images are also available for licensing and other uses that I specify. If you have a question on use of my images, please feel free to ask, and I think you will find that I am flexible and easy to work with.

I am also available for assignments and special projects. These can be done by the project bid, or, at an hourly rate.  In San Diego I am available for aerial photo work at a very reasonable rate.  To see a gallery of my aerial photography, click HERE

Browsing the photoblog: Archives will take you to past blog posts, or, you can view most photos in my online portfolio (powered by Piwigo).  Piwigo is an outstanding open source style gallery app, and I am thankful to the folks that put this together.

Art Philosophy: One cannot produce art without communicating.  Every picture, every note, even the silence between notes conveys an attitude and a message.  Art compels the heart and the mind to “dwell” upon the medium.

As an artist within the Biblical worldview, I found myself asking the question:  Does the Bible tell me how my art should be?  The answer rang loud and clear in Philippians 4:8

Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.

My art is essentially an outpouring of God’s creation, and as a servant of Jesus Christ, I humbly present my art to glorify Him and nothing else.
