Steve Bohnstedt

Steve Bohnstedt joined The Herald-Whig in June 2004 after working the previous 5 years in the Washington D.C., area freelancing full time for various publications including The Washington Post and The Baltimore Sun. He was named photo editor in January 2013.

Graduating from Texas A&M in 1989 with a B.S. in photojournalism, Bohnstedt has since worked as a staff photographer for various newspapers across the country.

"As a photojournalist, I strive to use photography in the literal Greek sense – 'to write with light' – to communicate ideas, capture the essence of events and make images that reveal the unexpected, instill compassion and celebrate life," Steve said. "The enjoyment I find in exploring the diversity of people, and sharing their experiences in a visually compelling way, is the essence of my work as a photographer."

As for personal information, Steve said, "I've got a great kid named Cameron, a python named snake and a small collection of really cool coffee cups. That's my life in a nutshell. Did I mention my collection of nutshells?"
