Mornington Peninsula Magazine first met Steve Brown at the launch of The Lounge & Balcony at the Frankston Arts Centre as we both wielded our cameras. Steve’s enthusiasm captured our attention, and from then on the modest photographer kept postponing our offer for a feature on him. Now, after much persistence, we can finally invite you to discover more about the man behind the gorgeous landscape shots on our past two covers.

After working for more than 30 years in telecommunications with Telstra and then running his own business repairing whitegoods, an aperture for a hobby opened up as he entered retirement. Steve longed to document his grandchildren’s lives as they began arriving into the world, and for the past eight years he’s been capturing their lives on film. From there it didn’t take very long before he was bitten by the camera bug and expanded into other types of photography.

“It keeps the body moving and the mind active, both important with age,” Steve said. “You also meet many interesting people with like interests. I also love the solitude and beauty of going to a remote location and capturing a magnificent sunrise. Situations like that become very relaxing and cathartic.”

Using Canon gear, his passion for landscapes and panoramas is evident in his breathtaking shots. So what provides the subject matter for his photographs? “Frankston Council’s Major Events leave most other councils for dead. Frankston also has great parks, playgrounds and beaches. The Peninsula has everything a photographer could want: great scenery, sandy beaches on one side and pounding surf and rocks on the other.

“Anybody looking for an activity to keep them active should consider photography. You can make it as big or as small as you want and meet a lot of nice people on the way.”
