Chicago based photographer Bob Stefko’s career spans nearly 20 years as an editorial and commercial shooter. During that time he has photographed a diverse range of subjects including Fortune 100 CEO’s, Olympic athletes, Presidential Gardens and some of the worlds most remote landscapes. His work regularly appears in Better Homes and Gardens, Forbes, Wine Spectator and Midwest Living magazine to name just a few. Bob has completed two books on travel and food for Globe Pequot and Meredith Corporation. His travel images from around the globe are represented and sold worldwide by Getty Images. His work has been featured in Photo District News many times including most recently in their Nature's Best issue. Bob is also for the 5th year a distinguished judge in Virtuoso Life magazine's annual travel photography contest. He generally travels five or more months each year completing editorial projects and shooting new travel and nature imagery for his stock collections. His fine-art images are exhibited in many permanent collections, including The Ogden Museum of Southern Art, CB Richard Ellis, ComEd and MB Financial Bank. When not snapping pictures you can usually find Bob living his secret life as a general contractor, urban gardener, wannabe chef or tinkering in his basement shop.
