Steven P. Carnarius is Designer, Portraitphotographer

and Art Director from Bamberg and Berlin, provincial and cosmopolitan, two counter sets combined, as the style of the artist too.

Since 2003, he is specialized in aesthetic, high-quality solutions for communication design and photography. His empathic talent and his penchant for fine papers combined with exceptional craftsmanship finishes this overall picture impressively. Individuality is in the foreground. He is also a twin: always on the lookout for something new, the noise of the challenge and in this way to discover interesting personalities.

As a portrait photographer, he works for the German ‘FAZ’, the ‘Mate Magazine’ and the cultural magazine ‘Liaisons’. His work has been published in magazines, newspapers and in exhibitions. Through his style he mixed photography with the technique of early painting masters. His photographs are unique and inspiring.

He is internationally active.

From 2003 until 2006  I worked at a Marketing Manager of a consulting company with leading market position in health care for large equipment medical professionals. In addition to that, I also started my studio for Graphic Design. At the beginning of 2007 I left the company at my own request after 5 years to be able to concentrate on my clients & projects full-time. When I joined the German Association of German Designers, I was one of the youngest professional graphic designers in Germany.
