Steve Fitch is a photographer and educator who has been making photographs of the American West for more then four decades. As a boy, the scenes that he observed out of the window of his father's 1951 Buick fascinated him. In the introduction of Fitch's first book Diesels and Dinosaurs, he recounts memories of observing small towns, glowing neon signs and 18-wheeers roaming the highway. Fitch was also witness to the rise and fall of the drive-in theater. All were experiences that molded his interests as an adult, leading to his visual studies of the highway culture of the American West and man's encroachment upon the land.

Fitch currently has five portfolios of work on the photo-eye website: Vernacular Assemblages, Llano Escandado, Gone, Diesels and Dinosaurs, and Western Landmarks. All of the portfolio's may be viewed by visiting
