From a young age, Stephen followed his globetrotting photographer father from the airport to the darkroom. Soon, he was capturing images with his own camera.
Since then, for over two decades, he has worked in the camera department with some of the world’s top directors and cinematographers on feature films, television series and commercials. Credits include Star Trek Beyond, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol and Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
As a cinematographer, Stephen has shot additional or 2nd unit photography on over a dozen productions including Deadpool, Warcraft, The A-Team, and the Netflix series Travellers.
Recently, he shot the feature film The Unseen, starring Rectify's Aden Young. It screened at twenty film festivals worldwide, including Vancouver International, and Paris International Fantastic film festivals.
The protagonist’s “gravity seems of a piece with the handsome, somber imagery of Stephen Maier’s widescreen location lensing.”
“Beautifully elevated by Stephen Maier’s visually stunning cinematography, replicating that particular brand of dark allure that fans of TV shows like ‘The Killing’ and ‘Durham County’ will instantly acknowledge and appreciate.”
