After college, Steve joined Rochester’s ABC network affiliate WOKR, now WHAM13 as a news video photographer. In those days a news video photographer would shoot the story and then edit the story to be aired that same day. That kind of intense on the job training, earned Steve the reputation for “editing in his head, while he is shooting”. Before Steve ever picks up a video camera, he already knows what he is going to shoot and how he or the editor and producer will edit the piece in order to tell the story. Steve has been recognized with countless Cine, Telly and Communicator awards for his talent and hard work. He is most proud of his Emmy Award and Emmy nominations along with a prestigious gold medal from the International Film and TV Festival of NY.
