SLS PHOTO ART
STEVEN L SPARKS

INTRODUCTION AND ARTIST STATEMENT

I enjoy making images that are a pleasure to live with, especially pictures that evoke positive feelings such as tranquility or harmony. Occasionally though I may divert my attention to images that have an environmental, journalistic, or historic message. Consistent genres or palettes bore me, so I have no defined parameters for content; and I explore many digital processing methods to express my artistic interpretation of whatever a scene may have to offer.

My favorite artist's quote is by the great American 19th century painter George Inness who said "The true use of art is, first, to cultivate the artist's own spiritual nature."

BIOGRAPHY

Beginning as a teenager learning photography with a twin lens reflex camera I have always engaged in some type of advanced photographic work, as my primary careers have allowed. My photographic experience includes photojournalism, aerial photography, portraits, sports, weddings, advertising, and especially creating and selling photographic fine art. My main careers included 24 years of flying helicopters and airplanes with the Army (including a combat tour in Vietnam), National Guard and Coast Guard. I enjoyed a shorter second career with USAA. I am married with three children and one granddaughter. Following my last assignment flying C-130's out of USCG Air Station St Pete/Clearwater we decided to remain in the Tampa Bay area. My wife and I now reside in north Tampa.

I am mostly a self-taught photographer though I have completed some formal photography training at North Kansas City High School, DOD Public Affairs School, Nikon School, University of South Florida, and with a commercial art photographer in Honolulu. I am a member of the North Tampa Arts League and a few local photography groups. Apart from my online portfolio, I occasionally display and sell my photo art at various local venues.
