About the Artist

Steve Kohoutek Himself

I am a thirtysomething amateur lots of things, professional fewer things.

I launched this site in 2003, at around the same time I received a point-and-shoot digital camera as a gift from my parents. Earlier versions featured my writing and music in addition to photography, but while those interests stagnated to varying degrees, my interest in photography continued to grow. I believe this was largely due to the existence of the site as a means of exhibiting my photos, and I now view the two as parts of a single project. SteveKohoutek.com has featured my photography exclusively since 2009.

It's pronounced "ko-HO-tek." It's Czech.

I grew up in Minneapolis and am a graduate of Drake University. I am now based in Hawaii, west of Honolulu.

Thank you for visiting. I hope you find something here that makes you stop for a second and enjoy the world around you.
