Stephen at a very young age was given training photojournalism by his father, Arthur Hough a nationally recognized photojournalist. He started photographing in "Black and White" film progressing to color film and today primarily in digital format. At 18 Stephen started his 24 year career in the Navy where he visited and photographed over 30 countries. After retiring from the Navy Stephen has continued his love of photography having traveled to over countries on five continents and 40 of our 50 states.
Stephen's true photographic love is "Landscape and Nature Photography" visiting many of the National Parks, Monuments, forests, and National Preserves along with a great number of state and local parks, Wildlife Preserves, wetlands, and coastal areas.
With all that Stephen does with his landscape and nature photography he still finds time to do Portraits, Children, Weddings, Newborns, Sports, and Special Events photography. Prior to forming his companies "Hough Photographic and Blue Flash Photographic" Stephen worked as the "Safety Specialist and Environmental Coordinator" for Marine Corps Community Services, MCCS performing inspections and photographing all findings, incidents, and accidents that occurred within MCCS's properties and facilities.
This August Stephen's photography was added to the 2016 Mono Lake Committee Calendar. Stephen has also been published in several Professional Photography publications, and San Diego Newspapers.
Throughout Stephen's photographic career he has taken time to educate other photographers on where, when, and how to take their photos of nature and landscapes, what equipment works and what equipment may-not work for them. Stephen has taken time to explain their photographic equipment and how to use it. Stephen is presently a member of "B&H Photo's" assistance team for equipment shoppers.
Stephen is presently enrolled at Palomar College to sharpen his skills in photography.
Stephen has active memberships in Professional Photographers of America (PPA), California (PPC), and San Diego County (PPSDC).
