Who am I?TOP
My name is Steven Hyatt and I am a Charleston, SC based photographer.
What kind of photography do I do?TOP
I am available for several types of photography.
- Architectural Photography – I am available for all types of architectural projects, either indoors or outdoors, such as houses, apartments, hotels, churches, offices and businesses. There are a few different methods which can be used to best suit the work you need. You can see samples of my architectural photographs in my architecture photo gallery .
- Portrait Photography – This inludes actor or modeling headshots, couples, families, newborns, or virtually any portrait needs you may have. View my portrait photography in my people photo gallery.
- Construction Photography – Construction projects frequently require documentation of the construction site before, during, and after project completion for documentation and insurance purposes.
- Wedding Photography – I also photograph weddings as part of the Diana Deaver Wedding Photography team. Photographing a wedding alone leaves too many moments missed, and Diana and I compliment each other perfectly.
- Landscape and Cityscape Photography – Have a beautiful view? Want a memory of a place you visited or grew up? I love to photograph panoramic landscapes and print them large. See some examples in my Charleston gallery.
- Wildlife and Nature Photography See my birds, birds in the snow, and insect galleries.
What about video?TOP
Yes, I also do video. I work with a team of videographers depending upon your needs. We are available to video weddings, events, performances, or to create promotional videos for you or your business. To see some examples of our video work visit our video gallery.
Where am I available?TOP
Charleston, SC is currently my home, so I am readily available in the downtown Charleston, Mt. Pleasant, James Island, Kiawah Island, Seabrook Island, Sullivan’s Island, Isle of Palms, West Ashley, Summerville, and Monck’s Corner areas. I am willing to travel throughout the state and often pass through Hilton Head, Columbia, Greenville, and Spartanburg. I also love to visit Savannah, GA and Asheville, NC, so I am happy to travel there. If you have any special travel requests, just let me know.
What is my background?TOP
I was born in Spartanburg, SC and that is where my love for photography began around the age of 15. I got my first “real” camera and proceeded to learn everything I possibly could about photography via the “take a really bad photo and try to figure out how not to do it again” method, and reading books of course. I soon thereafter began working at a camera store where I sold cameras, helped teach about photography, and learned about Photoshop and printing. During this time I also developed a slightly-too-healthy interest in antique cameras, amassing a collection of 215 cameras at it’s peak. I moved to Charleston, SC to attend the College of Charleston (I also briefly attended Winthrop) where I studied Philosophy and Religious Studies. About 5 years ago I helped start a fine art printing business out of Imaging Arts Gallery at 175 King Street, specializing in professional canvas and paper printing and photo restoration, and to this day I continue to print for everyone from “non-photographers” to professionals. Finally, about two years ago I began a project photographing historic churches, which started in the Charleston area and is now spreading throughout the country. Want to know more?
What are my prices?TOP
Prices for photographic work really depends upon your specific needs. You could pay very little, or quite a bit, since there are always very simple and very involved ways to do things. Let’s talk about your needs and we can work out something that will benefit us both the best.
What is the Churches of America Project?TOP
The Churches of America Project was started over 2 years ago in Charleston, SC with the goal of photographing the city’s many beautiful, historic church buildings. Often times we pass by these buildings, perhaps glancing at the exterior, but giving them little notice otherwise. To me, much of the beauty lies on the experience of the inside of the building. Thus, my goal was to capture the inside of these places and bring them out into the open for everyone to see. Since that time the project has greatly expanded and I am now traveling throughout the south photographing churches. To learn more, and see the work, visit the project’s website.
