Steve Werney

Steve Werney was born and raised in the San Joaquin Valley. He moved to the Bay Area to become a carpenter, and he has been sharpening his skills in San Francisco as a designer and builder for many years now. In 2010, he widened his focus to include photography. One of his projects was 111 Places in San Francisco That You Must Not Miss. He utilizes Canon brand cameras, which were also the brand his father used. Regarding his work, one photography critic noted, “While often abstracting the urban architectural form, Mr. Werney celebrates the meditative isolation of the objects.”
