Bio: My name is Peter B. Steele and I am a self-taught photographer born and raised in Bedford, NY. I have a degree in Geology, which brought me to Boulder, Colorado 18 years ago. Light is everything in photography so I have chosen unfiltered light from Mother Nature to activate my emulsion. I use all manual photographic equipment and emulsion film when shooting nature and landscapes. My cameras consist of a 1954 Linhof Technika (4x5 format), a 1954 Rolleflex (medium format), and a 1992 Nikon FM2 (35mm format). I recently purchased the Nikon D200 digital camera and use this for event and sports photography.
The story of how you first got artsy: The majestic landscape of the Rocky Mountains and amazing light I observed when moving to Boulder was the inspiration for me to capture it on film.
