Tofino Photographer Stephen Mayor


´╗┐At the age of 20 Stephen received his first 35mm SLR camera as a gift. He quickly became enamored with photography and the recording of scenes in nature, people, architecture and still life subjects.

He built his own darkroom and discovered the magic of printing his own black and white photographs. The masters of the 20th century, Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Irving Penn, Paul Strand, W. Eugene Smith and others became the foundation of Stephens photographic ideal. These photographers created images that amazed and often shocked mid 1900’s society.

In 1981 he graduated from the Glenn Fishback School of Photography in Sacramento, California. The years between graduation and the present were taken up with the business of photographic finishing, professional picture framing and art gallery direction, all the while remaining active in photography, shooting coastal scenes and macro still life images for pleasure, and the occasional commercial project.



Stephen has lived in and shot Tofino for the last 16 years. You’ll often find him shooting stills of local pro and semi-pro surfers from the beaches and headlands of Tofino and Pacific Rim National Park and traveling to international contests with the Canadian Junior Surf Team.

After many years working with artist Roy Henry Vickers, Stephen has changed focus on his career back to photography by opening his own studio. There he concentrates on nature and sport retail prints as well as large format printing, passport photos and camera supply. Stephen is very glad to be back immersed in his passion.
