Jeff’s passion for aviation began years ago while attending air shows with his father and brothers. However, it wasn’t until the summer of 2008 that his love of photography and aviation finally merged at the Geneseo Air Show. As fortune would have it, several of the images captured at that show went on to be sold and win awards at various photo competitions.
Since graduating with top honours from Humber College’s Creative Photography program in 2013, Jeff has established himself as a well-rounded professional freelance photographer by shooting a wide range of subject matter. However, it is his passion for producing aviation art inspired photography that brings him the most attention. He has produced several commissioned aviation works for clients such as Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum, Canadian International Air Show, Canadian Air and Space Museum, as well as many individual clients.
As a collector of aviation art books, Jeff draws almost all of his inspiration from aviation painters, several from the Canadian Aviation and Aerospace Association, as well as such names as Taylor, Wootton, Trudgian and others.
“It is an honour to be a part of the Canadian Aerospace Artists Association whose
members I have a tremendous amount of respect for” – Jeff Stephenson
