Steve Marais is a renowned fashion, portrait, beauty and advertising photographer who weaves his vibrant personality through his work. Since the start of his career Steve’s ability to evoke a very strong feeling in a picture has gathered him a global online following. Steve challenges the viewer with his unique eye and he has an uncanny capability to translate a concept visually.

Steve’s photographic style ranges from editorial to character portraiture. He often tries to find “something more” when creating an image, something that’s real and makes sense in the moment. Inspired by emotion, attitude and feeling, he takes pride in having hands-on creative direction. By creating bizarre story scenarios subjects have to work through or act out, Steve manages to capture what comes naturally in the moment, and that adds to the realness of his work.

Steve works between Cape Town and Johannesburg, South Africa.
