LA City Beat fired LA's best and coolest editor ever last week. I have no word on why he was "replaced" yet. Steve had a high respect for photographers, because he is one. He also resisted following the trend of replacing professional photographers with amateurs and iphotographers, while still recognizing new and younger talented photographers. Steve would often be seen in the field taking photos as well, often shooting film instead of digital. He is the founding editor at City Beat. Steve, thanks for running my pictures.
