Steve Koss



I am a documentary, editorial, and portrait photographer based in Detroit. My interests are in the things that bring us all together, and stories that happen everyday. I have been lucky enough to go to College For Creative Studies, worked with amazing photojournalists within the Documenting Detroit Fellowship, and even won a scholarship from Leica. For commissions, reportage, editorial, and portraiture or anything in between. Please feel free to contact me.
