Steve Axford is a photographer who lives and works in the Northen Rivers area of New South Wales in Australia.
His photos are a combination of beauty and scientific accuracy, and most of them could be used to identify significant detail.

 “What I like is photography and exploring the world.  The world, for me, is dominated by living things and the planet we live on .  My photography is an avenue into exploring this world.  My interests cover everything from micro fungi to volcanoes, though more of my time now is spent with the fungi than the volcanoes.”
