IMAGE’s Owner & Operator:
Steve Carver began his career as an artist and still photographer after earning degrees in Fine Arts from prestigious universities. After intense training at The American Film Institute, he became a successful filmmaker, directing and producing a score of notable features.
Seeking to refine his artistic vision, Steve turned his attention to a different kind of creative challenge, hoping that it would provide a path toward deeper self-fulfillment. With his passion for black & white photography, he opened THE DARKROOM, a photographic facility in Venice, California. Developing archival techniques in preserving historic images for private collectors and museums around the world, Steve created a body of work that he considers among his highest artistic achievements.
Steve’s ambition at IMAGE is to create archives of exceptional images for exhibitions, books and prestigious collections around the world. After years of disciplinary research in archival photography, it is his hope that his informative work will continue to offer new interpretations of traditional cultures through stylistic photography.
