Like most Atlantans, she’s a transplant, coming from Rembert, South Carolina (population: 400-ish), where her mother kept her busy with crafting and creating.

Steve West

When Steve West started his career as a graphic designer over 20 years ago, the thing that excited him the most was getting to work with photographers. He studied photography in college and understood the basics. But working side by side with them on projects, that’s where the real learning happened. In 2015 he stepped away from the marketing and advertising world and focused on his new jewelry company. This gave him the opportunity to travel and do more photography. Instead of standing off to the side, he’s behind the camera telling stories.
