Steve Diet Goedde has been a fine art photographer for over 30 years. He is known for his subtle approach to photographing the high-gloss fetish world in a very non-gloss, down-to-earth style. His attention to composition and black and white tonal quality has given him the title of the Ansel Adams of fetish. Steve established his photographic style in the early 1990s in Chicago where he photographed the contents of his first book "The Beauty of Fetish" (Edition Stemmle) which was released in 1998. That same year, Steve relocated to Los Angeles where he continued to define his evolving style. This west coast work was later compiled in his second Edition Stemmle book "The Beauty of Fetish: Volume II" in 2001. In 2006, Slish Pix released a DVD compilation of his work entitled "Living Through Steve Diet Goedde". In 2009, Steve collaborated with French composer Robert Waechter on a CD entitled "GoeddeConcerto" (ReadyMade Music) in which the ConcertMaster of the Philharmonic of Nice, France interprets 21 of Steve's photographs into 21 mini-concertos. In 2015, Steve celebrated his 25 years of photography with the first book of a 3-volume book retrospective of his work entitled "ARRANGEMENTS" published by Century Guild. The third volume of the work was released first with the following volumes coming a few years later. In 2019, he released a new book of work entitled "Extempore" published by London's Circa Press.
