Steve Taylor-Madin

Stephen Taylor-Madin is a portrait photographer from Narre Warren in Melbourne’s South Eastern suburbs. Steve’s style is simple, high-contrast and he often shoots exclusively in black & white.

After a long career shooting for Australia’s best BMX magazines, Steve has used his background in bicycle retail to get the most out of people by helping them feel relaxed & comfortable in front of his lens. Steve’s portraits help the viewer see into the lives of his subjects and evoke emotions like no other.

Working with Steve is an experience. He is quirky, or as some say ‘a unique chicken’ but that all makes for an entertaining portrait session. Not only will you be happy with the images Steve Taylor-Madin makes, you’ll enjoy the entire experience.

Where does Gorak come from?

So you may be wondering, where does the name Gorak Photo come from?

Well this comes from his early years of BMX and the nickname that stuck. It draws inspiration from a South Park episode that is an “Encino Man” parody. Look it up.
