Steve Knapp, Photographer
Steve graduated from Dundee Central School, in the Finger Lakes Region of Western New York State, in 1961 and then left the area to attend college and graduate school. After living in Philadelphia for over 30 years, where he reared his three sons and operated a graphic design business, he moved back to the Finger Lakes in 2002. He and his friend Nancy now live in a new home on Knapp Road in Barrington, south of Penn Yan, New York, where they enjoy one of the premiere views of Keuka Lake and one of the finest views anywhere in the Finger Lakes Region.
The view of Keuka Lake from his home provided the motivation for his current interest in photographing the beauty of the Finger Lakes.
Steve’s photographs have appeared several times in Life In The Finger Lakes magazine, which ran a full feature of his photos in its Fall, 2004 issue. One of his photos , of Hammondsport, N Y., was on the cover of its Fall, 2007 issue.
Steve's photographs include those of many of the region's 11 Finger Lakes and their many waterfalls, as well as pets, farms, barns, animals and several of the region's villages.
