THE PASSION & VISION OF STEVE MAXWELL
WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN PHOTOGRAPHING?
I grew up on the Northern Beaches of Sydney all my life but now reside in the Snowy Mountains. Some special places to shoot down there in the Kosciusko National Park, with its amazing waterfalls, snowscapes and of course our famous snowy mountain brumbies.
I was a big part of the Save the Snowy Mountain Brumby campaign where they used all my drone footage and stills to promote the cause.
What I have been photographing lately is a lot of live horseriding promotions. I've been on a five day horse ride called Riley's Ride. It's a four day horseback ride tracking the last steps of The Man From Snowy River, Jack Riley. The ride commemorates his life and follows his last journey, where he was sick and was stretchered from Tom Groggin Station all the way to Corryong.
As far as underwater work and anything to do with the ocean, I've been capturing a lot of surfing wherever and diving out at Rottnest Island as I travel there a lot for work. There are many beautiful places to shoot over there. I also travel and capture imagery up in the Top End.
One of my favourite places to shoot up the NT is out at Corroboree Billabong. A lot of crocodiles, birds and buffalo. Its just an amazing place.
