Steve is the proud father of two adult sons and currently resides in southern Wisconsin. He is the co-founder of Rock|Life Magazine, in addition to owning his own concert photography business (Steve Porter Photography).

He has shot many of the nation’s biggest rock festivals, including but not limited to Rock On The Range, Welcome To Rockville, Carolina Rebellion, Summerfest (aka the world’s largest music festival – Google it), Aftershock, Rock Fest Cadott, Rock USA, and Northern Invasion. While shooting the bigger bands and festivals is an amazing experience, he loves the intimacy and challenge of shooting smaller, dark clubs.

Steve is also a Live Music junkie. He keeps a spreadsheet of every band he’s seen and how many times, and the count is currently at 674 different artists. He’s pretty selective about what he listens to, but he loves seeing bands play live. In fact, some of the bands he’s heard live he has yet to listen to their recorded stuff.
