About Gary Steer

My principal photographic/cinematic background is documentary film production. I worked as an independent TV documentary producer, I have made my own productions as cinematographer, writer, producer and director. I have co-produced with broadcasters such as National Geographic, Discovery Channel; BBC; ABC; SBS; Australian commercial channels, ZDF and ORF Germany; NHK Japan. I am now specialising in still photography, covering subject areas of landscapes – wilderness, rural, ocean, desert – wildlife and heritage. Currently I am concentrating on fine art photography with special interest in impressionist/abstract depiction of landscapes. I am also working on some projects best described as narrative photography where a series of photographs illustrates a story.
