About Steve…

Steve Maller grew up in the San Fernando Valley. His father was a private pilot, and his love of aviation goes very deep. And his love of photography began in grade school. Of course, photography was an expensive hobby (as was flying), so Steve was limited in what he could do. In his twenties, Steve became part of the digital revolution, which reached mach speed when he joined Apple Computer in 1987. At Apple, Steve was deeply involved in creating many of the foundational pieces of our digital world today, including helping create the multimedia authoring system HyperCard, working on early digital media technologies, and working with what became Quicktime. Steve then went on to work at a startup called General Magic, which nearly managed to crack the code of the digital personal communicator, which was eventually to become the iPhone and its ilk. By the late 1990’s Steve went to work at Microsoft where, among other things, he is the sole inventor of a seminal patent in anti-spam technology published by Microsoft. In 2000, Steve left corporate America to begin his photography business.
