Please introduce yourself: What is your name, where are you from, what do you do?
My name is Rob Stephenson, I live in Fort Greene, Brooklyn New York with my wife and 2 kids. I work as a photographer and run my own drum scanning and archiving service out of my studio in the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
What is your relationship with photography? How did you get into it and what keeps you interested or motivated?
I had various film P&S cameras as a kid that I messed around with and was gifted a really early digital camera in the late 90s. I think it was around 2 megapixels. Soon after, I upgraded to a slightly nicer DSLR, and eventually transitioned to shooting with a view camera. I worked for Joel Meyerowitz for several years and that experience really intensified my relationship with photography and led to what I am doing today.
What are you currently working on, and — if there is — what is your next project or journey?
I’m reluctant to define my next project, though I have been shooting quite a bit recently. I continue to canvas the outer boroughs of the city and have am exploring a couple of themes that that are slowly coalescing into a more finished form.
Thank you Rob!
