Stephen Willing

Stephen is a father of three, grandfather of twin boys and a husband to an amazing wife. Stephen works for KDKA TV as a cameraman/editor. When he is not consumed with work he experiments with a still camera. His interests range from local history to travel. Preservation of local landmarks is very important to Stephen.

When Stephen was 11-years old his parents loaned him a Brownie camera for a school trip to Washinton D.C.. The photographs were black and white in a square format. He remembers how the technology was very primitive compared to today’s cameras, but still fun to use. he also recalls the feelings he experienced picking up those first prints from Briner’s, their neighborhood drug store. All these years later he still holds on to those first photographs. His favorite one captures the shadows of the Washington Monument on the Mall from the observation window.

This photograph was taken will exploring Wilkinsburg on a beautiful Saturday morning with Captured::Pittsburgh. This colorful reflection caught Stephen’s eye while circling the muted facade of the former Trinity Reform Church which is now the Arc of the Covenant Church. Stephen was drawn to the texture among the many layers of light and shadow. Images like this feed the soul.

“I am thrilled for the opportunity to share my vision with a wider audience.”

Stephen would like to thank his amazing wife Martha for all the support she has given him through out his creative journey.
