A Shoot with Stephen Rivers

If you subscribe to 360 West, you’ve probably seen some of Jeremy’s photographs. A lifestyle magazine that showcases life on the West side of the Metroplex, 360 West is home to some incredible editorial shoots. For the May 2017 issue, Jeremy had the opportunity to photograph designer Stephen Rivers  who recently launched a new line of home furnishings.

Rivers’ designs were partly born out of his desire to fill his new home. Dissatisfied with available offerings, he created what he wanted from scratch. The result is Jovili, a unique line of modern, timeless pieces based right here in Fort Worth, Texas.


This photoshoot is great because it captures the amazing design and cultural innovation taking place in Fort Worth. Bridging Scandinavian influence with the kind of character that is right at home in Fort Worth’s contemporary homes, Rivers has created a powerful collection.

You can see a selection of pieces from the Jovili collection below. Soft natural light really captures the warmth of these furnishings.

Steel Shutter Photography specializes in editorial photography. You can see many of Jeremy’s photographs featured in lifestyle magazines, such as 360 West and 817 Home. In these interiors shoots, Jeremy draws out the underlying narrative in the space, telling a visual story that sparks the audience’s interest.

The lighting and angles in this shoot help convey the unique design of Rivers’ furnishings: seamlessly modern and timeless. Every designer has a unique vision, and that requires a unique setup for each photoshoot.

You can see the way that Jeremy captures the style of different designers in this post on DFW interiors and architectural photography.
