Hello, my name is Stephen Furst, owner and founder of Furst Edition Photography. I have always had a passion for capturing memorable moments while viewing the world through my camera ever since getting my first SLR in high school.
Through the years I have been lucky enough to have the opportunity to photograph many different subjects from my children playing, to race cars travelling over 200mph, to fighter jets streaking across the sky at over 800mph. Through my broad spectrum of subject areas, my passion for photography shows no bounds and I am always looking for my next adventure.
I started Furst Edition Photography in the Northeast US when I lived in Connecticut. There I enjoyed combining my love of photography with both my love of motor sports and aviation. I spent much of my free time covering local short track racing, attending airshows or travelling to various parts of the country capturing images of the commercial aviation world.
Currently I live in Nashville, TN. Since moving here in November of 2014, I am shifting my focus slightly. Living in a city with multiple universities that have good athletics programs as well as being home to two professional sports teams, I have jumped on the opportunity to photograph sports.
Having these venues around me has provided me the opportunity to explore the world of NCAA Div I football and basketball in both regular season and tournament play. I had the honor this past year of photographing the 2015 Music City Bowl at Nissan Stadium as well as the University of Tennessee season opening game at the same venue.
The past 8 months have also presented me with my first forays into the exiting world of photographing NASCAR's premier series, Sprint Cup, Xfinity Series and Camping World Truck Series.
