STEVE PASSMORE (DIRECTOR/PHOTOGRAPHER)
Steve first started taking photos on his Grandfather’s film camera at the age of 11. As a teenager he saved up for his first SLR camera and would shoot anything and everything, and was often to be found in a spare bedroom, which doubled as a makeshift darkroom. After leaving university with a degree in electronic engineering, he designed cellular phones for Nokia for many years, before realising photography was his true calling! He moved from the UK to the Turks and Caicos Islands in 2004 and setup Provo Pictures the following year. He has become the ‘go to guy' for high end real estate, interior, and architectural photography, and is hired to photograph anything from small condos, to $45M private estates! Steve is known for his meticulous approach and for producing visually striking compositions. You will find his approach relaxed and friendly, and he treats each client with the same care and attention irrespective of the size of the job.
Provo Pictures has been supplying the top resorts, architects, interior designers, real estate, and property management companies with visually compelling photography since 2005. In 2014 the company expanded in to video, and supplies the same clients with complete end-to-end AV solutions. With a combined experience of over 30 years in the industry, Provo Pictures is equipped to tackle your most demanding projects. As well as being featured locally, our work has been featured in international publications such as the New York Times, Coastal Living, The Robb Report, The Wall Street Journal, Harper’s Bazaar, and Caribbean Travel and Leisure.
