Steve Giralt is a very passionate Miami, FL born cuban photographer / Director, and Visual Engineer who likes to smile a lot and is fun at parties. Although he comes from a family of engineers, he studied photography at Rochester Institute of Technology. While at RIT he didn't sleep very often, but won lots of awards. His work spans many different genres from people, the places they occupy, the things they own, or the many things they'd like to own. Steve is no longer a photographer by choice, it's at the very root of who he is as a person. Taking the best picture possible and pushing the limits is the end goal of every photograph he ever takes.
In 2005 Steve was selected as one of PDN magazine's 30 emerging photographers to watch. In 2006 www.stevegiralt.com won an award as part of PDN's digital PIX imaging awards. Now, Steve spends most of his time in his Manhattan studio with his dog Humphrey Bogart, upstate NY building things in his workshop, at home in Brooklyn with his family, or finding a new adventure somewhere. Steve still does not sleep very much.
Steve is also founder of Image Maker's Club; a group for NYC image makers to collaborate and learn together.
