Welcome to photography insights, the show that interviews people from the photography world. I’m your host Andrew Walmsley and today we have an excellent film and polaroid photographer for you. Steven Meyer Rassow is what is known as a digital artist, as his day job involves him designing book covers and artwork for people.
During his free time he is an advocate of film and loves the square format, but not just film. Steven shoots and loves Polaroid too, and has a variety of work to showcase and discuss.
He is a lovely and open person, who freely discusses his work and passion. We actually met through one of my Kodak competitions over a year ago now and one of his photographs had a lasting effect on me.
In this one we discuss:
- Judge Dredd
- Book covers
- Digital manipulation
- Polaroid frustrations
Steven is also put through our random questions so find out why he wants to punch Steven Seagal!

Finally i’m proud to tell you all my first body of work is available to buy! I’m very humbled by static age wanting to print this work and constant encouragement. You all know i’m an advocate of the printed medium so to have something printed myself is incredible.
Not everyone realises simply how much this achievement means to me on a personal level. My background is very humble, i’m from a poor family i have to be honest, i was an average student and brought up around a mixture of great people and not so great due to the location. I plodded along in life for many years and always felt like something was missing. Photography has allowed me to talk to you all, share my love, passion and zest for life. Hopefully it’s the start of a new chapter.
The zine is only UK £4 delivered too so very affordable, even if you can’t afford to buy it just share the link – i will be eternally grateful.
Please don’t forget i’ve launched the KO-FI donation page, for anyone wanting to help me fund improvements to the show.
