Today, I am super excited to introduce you to a man you may have seen before, but never met…the man behind the camera…Stephen Savage!
If you have seen any of my recent blogs, then you know that lately, I have been diving in to explore the lives of some of Fairhope’s finest individuals. Then, through my video series, “People of Fairhope,” I’m able to introduce these incredible people to you! Well, I knew that I definitely needed an interview with Stephen Savage. Fairhope is one of the most artistic, creative, and expressive communities I have encountered, and the artistic scene simply wouldn’t be complete without this talented gentleman!

Stephen wears many hats here in Fairhope, including photographer, film producer, and educator, to name just a few. What sets Stephen apart as a photographer is that he can capture your uniqueness while making the process a very fun one! Stuffy poses and boring routine have no place in Stephen’s photoshoots; in his own words, Stephen sees photography as a collaboration between the people and the photographer–a team effort that will yield stunning results! Stephen specializes in everything from weddings and high school senior portraits, to concerts, family portraits, and local events. In fact, if you’ve ever stood in the crowds of Fairhope’s Mardi Gras Parade, Christmas Parade, Live at Five Concerts, or any other function, you’ve most likely seen Stephen with camera in hand, capturing the magical moments. Take a moment to follow Stephen’s Facebook page, where you’ll also find his albums of Polo at the Point, Fairhope Rotary Club cookoffs, White Linen Nights, and much more!
Stephen’s history is filmmaking goes all the way back to his college days. He enjoys creating documentary-style films, marketing materials for business, and you’ll even see his material featured at the Fairhope Film Festival! Overall, though, Stephen acknowledges that his most fulfilling work is to educate. He taught art history & photojournalism at Mobile’s Spring Hill College for twenty years, and currently teaches photography at the Eastern Shore Art Center. Right across the street at Bone & Barrel, he also teaches advanced photography. Oh! And eleven years ago, Stephen co-founded the Eastern Shore Camera Club, a photography group for all skill levels, where members can meet once a month to share their work and learn more about the art of photography.
To sum it up, I am so grateful to know Stephen Savage, and so grateful for everything he has contributed to our beloved town! Make sure to check out his Facebook page…and hopefully you can meet him for yourself someday soon!
