Steve Dunn has been studying photography for16 years and has taken seminars on a wide variety of photographic topics.  Most notably, he has studied visual design with internationally known photographers Freeman Patterson and Andre’ Gallant.  He has also studied with internationally acclaimed photographers Joyce Tenneson and Jay Stock.  Steve’s photographs have been accepted into numerous juried international exhibitions where he has won a number of awards, including three gold medals from the Austrian Super Circuit, the largest juried photographic exhibition in the world.  His work has been part of international exhibitions in Europe and Asia and has also been exhibited in numerous galleries throughout Maine .

Steve specializes in fine art photography and uses such techniques as Polaroid manipulation, multiple exposure, montage, and rear projection, which give much of his work an impressionistic quality.  He also teaches photography classes with an emphasis on visual design. Steve’s wife, Sandra Leinonen-Dunn, is an artist, and is the inspiration for many of his fine art portraits.  Together they run a studio in their home in Chelsea.
