Steven Branstetter Photography

Film is authentic and rich, a style that inspires and excites me

My photographs are sexy, yet classic, borrowing  from french cinema with a direction that moves mostly into the Black and white realm. I am a San Fransisco based film photographer applying a photojournalistic approach to both my personal and commissioned work.


I treat every frame as if it were one day to appear in a Gallery. This approach allows me to capture life as it is; intimate and real.  A behind the scenes look into real life. I believe in real moments and less manufactured, stale and mundane. I want to capture love, happiness and triumph that tells your story.  All of my stories are photographed on 35 and medium format film. When I’m not working, I’m spending my time with my lovely 2 little girls, wife and 2 dogs, being silly and enjoying organic ice cream.
