Steven Michael has lived on the Oregon Coast for most of his life. He has ventured and explored the entire length of the coast, photographing what he discovers and taking a sand sample as a physical souvenier. Most of his life experience is coast related.
Back in 2007, while studying an Oregon map, he realized just how much of Oregon he hasn't seen. A yearly goal began and Steven has ventured each year into the state, photographing new places and documenting the beauty he find along the way, whether it be through photography or writing.
Steven Michael is an award winning photographer, a published author, and illustrator. He is known as the Ambassador of the Southern Oregon Coast.
