Artist info - Steve McHugh

Artist Statement:
Steve has been working as a commercial photographer for the past 30 years based out of Minneapolis.  His work has been broad in experiences from shooting motorcycles in Monument Valley, AZ. to aircraft in Tokyo, Japan and snowmobiles in Idaho and boats in Texas.  Always focused on the relationship of the natural light and the envirorment with products.

Moving to Madeline Island in 2006, I started experimenting with time exposures and the graphic abstract colors and textures of the surroundings.   Shooting often at night or dusk, to allow enough time for the winds of the Island to blur what seems fixed and stable.

Steve studied Fine Arts at Layton School of Art in Milwaukee and photography at Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara, CA.  He has received numerous awards for his Advertising Photography including a
                            Golden Lyon at Cannes, France.
