Stephen Meierding has a passion for bringing normally uninspiring objects to life through the investigatory process of photography. "It's a thrill when an object that at first seems normal and mundane, is suddenly brought to a magical new stature through lighting and composition," says Steve. His process is about exploration and investigation. "Everything has something positive, new, and interesting that can be exposed and brought to light."

Steve studied Advertising and Graphic design at the University of Delaware and began his photography career in New York City in 2002. He learned still-life photography while working full time as an assistant for advertising photographer, Craig Cutler, working on hi-end brands such as Rolex, Bombay Sapphire, Tiffany's, Infiniti Cars, and IBM, among many others. He also worked under Fashion Photographer, Regan Cameron, and Kevin Macintosh, among many other heavy hitters in fashion before he moved his own photography to the front burner.

The Art for Haiti auction will be coordinated by eBay Giving Works and 100% of the proceeds will go to Partners in Health. The auction & print sale will run now through the end March 9, 2010 at 7:30 PM (EST).
