Stephen McNeillCanadian fine art photographer, Stephen (Stef) McNeill, grew up in a small town near Toronto. At the age of 16, he enrolled in a photography course and was required to shoot a roll of black and white film for his first assignment. He borrowed a 35mm camera and fired off the film in his backyard. Weeks later, the students were given a lesson on the solarisation technique. He was hooked.

To help fuel his passion for photographic art, McNeill moved to Toronto and began his apprenticeship training in the graphics industry as an imaging specialist in 1979. During this time, he branched out to the art’s scene and voluntarily took on photography assignments to gain experience.

In 1983, he produced, The Grand Illusion – a presentation that combined photography, mime and live music – resulting in the first public exhibition of his art. Throughout his career, McNeill's had a deep affinity for black and white imagery and print-making. He is one of the few accomplished darkroom printers still working today. His work is found in private collections, exhibitions, publications and educational/charitable institutions.
