My love for photography began as a boy when I was taught the basics by my father. During a tour of duty with the U.S. Army in Vietnam, I bought a professional model Nikon SLR film camera and dreamed of becoming an artistic photographer when I returned home. A family of my own and a new career put that dream on hold, but I have always enjoyed photography as an art form. Several years ago, after surviving another kind of war with cancer, I began to really see the beauty in our world. Ever since then I have been inspired with a new awareness of life and an improved photographic vision. This has compelled me to find beautiful scenes wherever I go and share my favorite creations with others who may not have the time to do so.

In 2006 I finally realized my dream from so long ago and began selling my art locally. Later in 2009, I established my online galleries here with Fine Art America. While continuing to travel, improve techniques, obtain new equipment and add to my ever-increasing inventory, my art has now been purchased by collectors throughout the United States as well as in 10 other countries. Although I am no longer a young man, my passion for this art form grows and I will continue to create and share my art with others for as long as possible.

I have created all of my favorite Scenes From Far And Near images from my original photographs taken on location, by adding digital enhancements, textures, painterly style brush strokes or other effects. These effects and image details will become more visible by clicking inside the green magnifier square as the cursor is placed over the image. All images here are Copyright Mel Steinhauer with all rights reserved. Exclusive or limited rights for authorized use may only be obtained by an email to me directly through the contact link above.

Secure online ordering by most credit cards with direct shipment to you. All orders are professionally printed and assembled to your specifications at a quality facility in the U.S.A., or now there is one in the U.K. plus four other countries for prompt ordering and reduced shipping costs to destinations worldwide.

Thank you and best wishes !
