corysteffen For my last day of the B&W challenge I am posting a photo of one of my biggest inspirations. @miss_deemontero has been my friend since moving to Salt Lake in 2009. We met at art school, she was a video major while I was a photo major. Even though we were just friends and had relationships, for the first few years we stayed friends. Two years ago we became more then that. Now, not only do I have a friend and a lover, but also an artistic partner in crime. We push each other to keep improving our crafts and support each other in our endeavors. Last summer we made a photo roadtrip to the west coast. This solidified how amazing we were together. Tomorrow we are officially moving into our new place together. We also plan to open our studio the beginning of the year! I can't wait to see what our future holds. And the art we will create. Stay tuned... #crescentcity #californiacoast #roadtrippin #manfrotto #surf #striveforgreatness 7d

corysteffen So I've totally been slacking on the B&W challenge. I've been in the process of moving so things have been a little hectic. Anyways this is my day 4 of the challenge. I took this photo at #stingraycity while visiting #grandcayman earlier this year. It was such an amazing experience swimming with these #stingrays in the wild. 1w

corysteffen Day 3/5 of B&W challenge. This was shot in 2011 while I was interning with @stanevansphoto. We worked with the very talented and inspiring model @sierraquitiquit (who is living her life to the absolute fullest, check her out). I've always loved working with people in a studio setting. The simplicity and history of shooting a model on a blank background has always been appealing to me. Putting the emphasis on the model and the lighting used. Shooting in B&W further simplifies this situation. Some of my favorite photos I've made have been situations like this. #studiophotography #sierraquitquit #elinchrom @elinchrom_ltd #hairfordays #corysteffenphotography 2w

corysteffen Day 2/5 of B&W challenge. This was taken down in #stgeorge #utah the day after Christmas a couple years ago. It's always #surreal seeing snow in the desert. This #cactus looked so striking with the snow dotted against the darkened backdrop. #blackandwhite #desertsnow #corysteffenphotography 2w

corysteffen I was nominated to participate in the 5 day B&W challenge by @mrascon - Day 1: Image from college at the Art Institute. This has always been one of my favorite projects. One of the few I shot entirely in B&W. The goal was to reproduce #oldhollywood styling and lighting in the studio. #normajean was amazing and not only modeled but also brought all of the props, and did her own hair and makeup! Shot with #hotlights and the #canon7d #artinstitute #corysteffenphotography #retro I nominate @bflintphoto to take on the challenge. 2w

corysteffen Today reflecting on the last year, I have so many things to be thankful for. This has been one of the best years of my life yet. Sure there have been a few rough patches, but that is all part of the journey. This year has been full of amazing new experiences, too many to count. And I still have a few to look forward to. My lady @miss_deemontero and I are moving into our first place together next month, as well as hopefully getting our own photo studio! I wouldn't be where I am today without the love and support of family and friends and my lady. I am thankful for all of you today. Much love!! 3w

corysteffen #throwback to a few months ago when the #statefair was going on. Decided to take advantage of the scenery for a #seniorportrait shoot. I had a blast using the rides as background elements. Nothing more iconic as the #ferriswheel though! #corysteffenphotography #utahstatefair #utahphotographer 1mon

corysteffen One more from the shoot I posted earlier. Little Sophia was such a great model. I've always believed in shooting in more of a #journalistic or #lifestyle type of shooting style. Even if I stick someone in a location I tend to get my favorite shots in between "the shot". Sophia just wanted to explore these rocks and I happened to have a front row seat. #corysteffenphotography #childrenphotography #utahphotographer #5dmkiii 1mon

corysteffen As part of our anniversary over the weekend, we got to swim in the #homesteadcrater in Midway. I had the opportunity to do some photography for @parkcityyogaadventures a few years ago for their marketing. They do #paddleboard #yoga inside the crater in the 96 degree mineral water inside the crater. I was then contacted by an author creating a book called #50wateradventurestodobeforeyoudie I provided a couple images. One of which is featured in the book which is available online at Amazon.com I highly recommend checking the book out of you are into water activities! Also make the trip and check out the 10,000 year old Homestead Crater. More images can be found on my website as well. 1mon

corysteffen Can I go back to last night? Yesterday was @miss_deemontero and I's two year anniversary. We stayed in #midway #utah at the #zermattresort. We weren't blown away by dining options though. So we took advantage of the kitchen in the suite. I think we made the right choice. That plus new #walkingdead and plenty of #champagne, helped make our evening amazing. Love you Diana. 1mon
  •   monteztorre Can it be our two year yet? Looks memorable. Congrats brother. 1mon
  •   miss_deemontero I love you babe! What a beautiful weekend 1mon
  •   corysteffen @monteztorre I think you would've enjoyed our two year buddy. Not only steak dinner. But @miss_deemontero got a Ruger snubnose .38 special as her gift. Ha ha ha... 1mon
  •   kelsyng We stayed there for our two year anni last year as well. It was amazing. The pastry shoppe had my heart! Happy Anni to you guys! 1mon

corysteffen The last few weeks I haven't been posting many iPhone photos. So here is another one for today. I love looking for light and the form it makes at night. Especially when working with #b&w images. #downtownslc #creepyalley #windowsonwindows #saltlakecity 2mon
