Hi I'm Steve Bedell. Let me tell you a little bit about myself in this section. I've been a professional photographer for about 30 years. During that time, I've witnessed a lot of change and learned a few things. Hey, even a blind squirrel will pick up a few acorns here and there! And hopefully I'm going to help you out a little bit with your photography. Sound good? Great, here's my background.
Since most 'PPA type' photographers, that's the portrait and wedding world mostly, earn their "street 'cred" through competition with other photographers and juried competitions, let me tell you about that. I have both the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) Master of Photography and Photographic Craftsman Degrees. The first is for competence, the second for service to the profession. I've been named NH Photographer of the Year six times, also an 'earned' award that no one else has won more than twice.
I've won literally hundreds of awards, have written over 100 articles for trade publications, and am a PPA Affiliate Juror. Anyway, enough about me, please enjoy the site!
