Stephen Badolato, also known as goodnitesteve, is a Photographer based in  New York City.

Born in 1991, close to the Mexico border of California, Steve grew up on Long Island and dabbled with disposable drug store cameras, as well as a Hi8 Sony video camcorder, rarely sharing his results with anyone. 
By the time he was a senior in high school, he was fluent in Adobe Photoshop, Premiere, and the darkroom that the school provided. He even submitted a self portrait to Newsday, shot on a Nikon D50. His family nearly spit out their coffee seeing his face in the Sunday paper. 

After high school, he pursued and received a Fine Arts Degree in Film/Video from Five Towns College.  
Ever since then, he's worked steadily as a photographer, videographer, video editor, as well as a graphic designer at various companies. 
During the pandemic, the opportunity to move to the East Village arose and he's been enjoying life there ever since. 
He's available for street photos, landscapes, portraits, weddings, bar mitzvahs, and cattle stampedes.
