Based in Los Angeles. Born in Massachusetts. A.A. in photography from Maine Media Workshops. Making pictures of people is my favorite thing to do. Especially if I am drinking wine at the same time! I love to make up stories for my subjects to act out. I am obsessed and captivated by 1970's culture. I am most inspired by locations, of the glamourous and weird kind, hotels and homes lit with California light. My heroes are Helmut Newton, Larry Sultan, Andy Warhol, Led Zeppelin, Brigitte Bardot, & Janis Joplin. I am working on a book of Diora Baird, she is my modern Brigitte Bardot. I also am a Polaroid fanatic, a book is in the works on that too. Stephen Bowman is my main man for makeup, he is glorious. Feel free to contact me about shoots and/or to talk about photography. Thanks!  steph@stephanievovas.com  REPRESENTED BY WENDY STENZEL @ NEST ARTISTS  WENDY@NESTARTISTS.COM  323-620-0111
