"Cvatik" is my Russian name spelled phonetically in English. My name is Steve Gindler. 28 year old portrait photographer from Northern New Jersey. Most of my time is spent looking through my camera's viewfinder or at my computer screen.

Photography, in every sense, is literally my life. I try and take my camera with me everywhere, and create a new adventure for myself everyday. Between shooting analog film and digital imagery, I found a medium that truly expresses the best tech of today while incorporating a nostalgic look to my images that I believe truly encompasses the emotion of any given moment.
