About Steve Vaughn of Steve Vaughn Photography

“So long as it’s warm there in January, that’s the place I want to be” – Steve Vaughn

Award-winning panoramic photographer Steve Vaughn has always been inspired by the outdoors and nature, but the elements of the tropics are his true passion. His quest to capture unique beaches, landscapes and islands have taken him throughout much of the Caribbean, Central America and Florida. Thankfully, he is willing to occasionally capture the beauty of non-tropical locations, too.

Vaughn comes to art and photography after a 30-year editing career in the newspaper business. He credits what he knows about photography to the news photographers that he worked with through the years. During his 25 year career at The Orlando Sentinel, Steve was sports editor, managing editor and then executive editor of the newspaper from 1980 through 1992. He is, however, very quick to point out that you are not likely to find him at a long meeting or wearing a white shirt and necktie ever again.

Steve and Ranae Vaughn, a tax accountant, have been married 42 years. Their son Michael, a former lieutenant commander and lawyer with the U.S. Coast Guard, now is in private practice in Orlando. Their daughter Kelley is a graphic artist and musician in New York City. The Vaughns have two grandchildren.
