Hi, Steve Lemak, aka slemak, here.  Thanks for stopping by!

I absolutely enjoy what I do… I get to capture images and express my creativity through photography.  It allows me to slow down and observe the word around me as my “commute-work-eat-work-commute-eat-sleep-then-repeat” daily life as an IT executive needs diversions…  That is, my photography is a great departure from the everyday pandemonium I willingly choose to experience.  

My photography has been mostly hobby and all passion since 1996.  The day it becomes work will probably be the day that I look for something new to do. :)

In 2005 I started my photography business, thoroughly loving wedding and event photography and cherishing the opportunities photography has given me since then.

Many folks have their own definition of photography. To me it is the combination of light, good timing, technical know-how, along with some luck. But more importantly my philosophy of photography is about vision with imagination & determination at its core.

The famous photographer Elliott Erwitt said it best, “Photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”

With repeat business and personal referrals, a loyal following of satisfied customers have been directly responsible for the consistent growth of slemak photography. I do everything possible to satisfy my clients and I believe my work speaks for itself.  I invite you to browse my blog and portfolios to view samples of my work and to see the variety of services that I offer.

Hope you enjoy!


Since 2005 I have been providing photography services, focusing on events, weddings, landscapes, and portraits. It has been an amazing 13 years of satisfying achievements, but more importantly, 13 years of incredible relationships and amazing bonds.

I am a technology executive who loves that place where art and technology collide…  all things photography and all things Adobe Photoshop & Illustrator! I’m located just outside Philadelphia in South Jersey (NJTP Exit 2 for the locals).

I picked up a camera over 30 years ago, enjoying what could be created with my point-n-shoot and digital SLRs. When studying for my Instructional Technology Masters Degree, I was introduced to the world of digital design which expanded my enjoyment of photography even further.

I consider myself an artist and an IT business executive.  I’m professional, friendly, efficient, organized, and it is my goal to out perform your expectations and produce quality images you will cherish for years to come.


I shoot exclusively with two Canon EOS 5D Mk IV & Mk III and the new EOS-R full frame mirrorless camera bodies with the Canon  600EX-RT Speedlites always by my side.  I use the following lens: Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L, Canon 85mm f/1.2L, and Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L.  My makeshift 18′ x 11′ basement studio consists of two Alien Bees B1600 Flash Units with 32″ x 32″ soft boxes.
