Steve Olin's Summary
Although Center Stage takes up much of my time each year, my primary occupation is wildlife artist and engraver.
My goals in each field (photography and engraver) revolves around my personal need to create art. With an understanding wife and a lot of practical experience, these goals are satisfied with usually a profit to boot. I am enjoying life in Oswego and sailing all that I have time for.
I am sharing my skills via a 2 vol edition about engraving.
Specialties: engraving, commercial and wedding photography, wildlife artist.

Center Stage primarily supplies Photography and commercial services during May to June each year. Our innovative practices benefiting the bride resulted in the company growing more than initially envisioned. Due to our human resources and quality equipment we are gradually expanding beyond the wedding season.

All of my engraving career has been inspired by the concepts of Arts and Crafts Movement and the work of William Morris. I engrave by hand with a hammer and chisel or a hand burin. True hand engraving does not involve machines.
