Does Photo Gear Matter? No…and yes! By now most people have heard the adage in reference to taking pictures that “it’s not the camera.” Or, “cameras don’t take pictures, people do.” Etc.  Those rem...

THESE are the good ol’ days! And what about tomorrow??   My two creative passions are photography and music. So, it’s great when the two of them “meet,” so to speak. And frequently that happen...

A view from the beach near where Vivian Maier lived...along Sheridan Road, near Lake Michigan.  Chicago/Evanston.
For those of you who don't know of Vivian Maier, please look her up.  An inspirational, sad, mysterious true story about one of the great photographers of the 20th Century.  Stranger than truth.

Story
Tagline
Photographer. Musician/Music lover. Northwestern University Instructor. http://www.stephenmlevinphotos.com/
Introduction
Married to Judy. 
Two children and their spouses--Jordan (Elise) and Audrey (Michael).
Four grandsons--Gabe, Drew, Isaac, and Charlie.
Grew up and still live in the Chicagoland area. 

Bragging rights
Avid and involved photographer and musician. I've been active and involved with photography for a LONG time. Even did quite a bit freelance photojournalism for the local papers about 30 years ago. Used to love B&W film and still have an affinity for B&W images. I much prefer working on the computer to working in the lab with chemicals. I always have my eyes open for photo opps and try to have my camera with me as much as possible. Even the iPhone, if necessary! Always observing light and shadow and form. I am also a musician. Started out with classical piano lessons as a young child and moved on to the guitar (acoustic and electric), mandolin, and bass. What a way to relax and lose oneself...playing music! Both music and photography keep me sane....to some degree.
Education
  • University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
    1968 - 1972
