If there's an event in New York worth documenting in New York, there’s a good chance that photo-journalist Steve Eichner will catch it. This self-made photographer has established a reputation for providing leading newspapers, news weeklies and monthly glossies with the money shots.
Steve's work has appeared in publications including The New York Times, Women's Wear Daily, Newsweek, Time, Rolling Stone, People, Vanity Fair, Cosmopolitan, GQ, W and Details.
His work is diverse, ranging from celebrity portraiture and fashion photography to concerts, extreme sports and aerial scenes.
Since he began shooting 30 years ago, Steve has captured thousands of key moments on film and now digitally. In the ‘80s and ‘90s, he was the exclusive photographer for night clubs such as Limelight, Palladium, Wetlands Preserve and Tunnel, gaining access to coveted photo opportunities.
Steve is currently the New York staff photographer for Fairchild Publications, a division of Conde Nast and publisher of W magazine, Women’s Wear Daily, Details, and other titles. “I cover the night beat for all the publications -- everything from celebrity portraiture to runway fashion shows to society parties,” Steve says. “It’s great because I am always shooting something different.”
