Steven Oates, Edinburgh photographer
I met Edinburgh photographer Steven Oates at an intense party hostel in London while he was passing through town for a few days. Thankful to find a likeminded traveler in the place, I connected with him instantly. Steve is unique in that he works in finance but pursues a passion for photography on the side. I admire that he is both career focused and creatively driven and am inspired by the success he has had in both areas of his life.
I also had the chance to accompany Steve to the incredible Veolia Environnement Wildlife Photography Awards exhibit at the Natural History Museum, which I wouldn't have thought to see otherwise. I look forward to seeing the photos from his time in London, but for now here are some of my favourites from his portfolio.
