Steven Cirone is the current and a past President of the Sierra Club Photo Section.  Growing up in Southern California, Steve spent many days surfing, skateboarding, diving, and exploring our diverse environment.

In recent years he has turned the experience gained from decades behind the camera to capturing the beauty of the birds native to California.  His style is influenced by his early training as a student of Art Morris – whom he still greatly admires. Art is the grandfather of the wonderful hobby of modern avian photography.
