Photography goes back a few generations in the family so it’s no surprise that when Steve picked up his first camera at age 12 he hasn’t put one down since. After graduating The Portfolio Center art school of Atlanta in the 80s, Steve began his career and landed in the success of stock photography .
Steve and his wife Janis Christie shared their love and skill for photography and together created Christie & Cole Studio as a primary workspace located in Atlanta’s Virginia Highland historic neighborhood. You will find Steve behind countless hours of shooting and digital processing in his studio unless he is out working on a commercial location or traveling the world, from Tokyo to London, capturing his next stock image.
On the rare moments when Steve is not shooting he teaches his best friend and dog Bailey new tricks, competes on the tennis court, and if he really gets to relax you might catch him with his feet up flipping through a vintage edition of Galaxy Magazine.
