Steve Parke

Steve Parke started working for Prince in 1988, after a mutual friend showed Prince some of Steve's photorealistic paintings. As Steve learned Photoshop and other design programs, Prince asked him to design everything from merchandise and album covers to sets for tours and videos. Eventually Steve became Paisley Park's official art director and spent a week out of every month in Minneapolis, often working through the night with Prince in a near-empty studio. In the late 90s, Prince asked Steve if he could use a camera. For the next several years, Steve took hundreds of shots of Prince, most of them in or around Paisley Park. What is unique about Steve is that he not only worked with Prince so intimately and for so long-the way very few other people did-but that, of the very few people who did, he's one of the only ones with photos.Steve is currently the photo editor for Faerie Magazine.
