Guides and Resources for Photographers

About the F/Stop Spot

video-spacerBiography and Photograph of Steve Paxton - PhotographerMy name is Steve Paxton. I own and manage the F/Stop Spot. I have been a photographer for over 20 years. In 2006 I combined my love of photography with my passion for writing. What started out as just a couple of photography guides has evolved into an amazing resource and a community of smart, creative people. From the beginning, my focus has always been to provide high quality photography guides and resources for free.

I live 20 minutes north of Seattle with my wife and two children. When I am not writing for the F/Stop Spot, I work as a portrait and wedding photographer. I am absolutely passionate about making close connections with people and I love the beauty and magic of weddings! I view every wedding as a unique challenge and opportunity to create special images that will endure the test of time.

I invite you to check out my personal images at Paxton Prints and portrait photography at Paxton Portraits.

Pocket Poser – Portrait Posing App For Photographers
I co-developed a smartphone and tablet posing app called Pocket Poser . New and experienced portrait photographers often struggle with creating dynamic poses. Pocket Poser is filled with 100s of easy-to-setup poses and tons of helpful lighting and posing instruction. Keep up with the F/Stop Spot and Pocket Poser on Facebook and Twitter.
