Steve Simon is a photojournalist and documentary photographer who has spent years photographing events both large and small. From political events, religious practices and cultural influences, he has rooted his work on the practice of telling stories both big and small. He is also an educator who has taught photography at the International Center of Photography in NewYork and the Loyalist College Photojournalism Program in Canada. He is also the recent author, The Passionate Photographer, a book which focuses on his personal approach to using personal projects to explore a photographer's ability to tell stories and improve their photographic skills. You can discover more about him and his work by visiting his website and his blog, the latter which will be up and live before the end of 2011.
