Steve Poole was born in London and has been a professional photographer since 1988. Completely self-taught, he began shooting local news stories and quickly rose to shooting global stories for the national newspapers. In the mid-90s his attention turned to portraiture for magazines, where he shot hundreds of celebrities and was often requested by rock stars, royalty and Hollywood actors. This period culminated in his work being exhibited in galleries including The National Portrait Gallery in London where 5 of his shots are still part of the collection.
For the last 10 years, Steve has lived in Lymington and has turned his love of the still image towards landscape photography. His recent work takes us around the South coast of England, along the rivers of Hampshire, through the woodland of the New Forest and on the Solent.
Steve has been published in many titles across Europe including: Condé Naste Publications, NME, Tattler, GQ and The Times as well as shooting a number of book covers. Steve has given interviews to magazines and has appeared on Channel 4 TV giving his expert view on photography. To find out more about Steve read the interview he recently gave to Hampshire Life.
