Meet Stephen Lioy

I'm a travel photographer and writer based in the Central Asian city of Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. Though I'm passionate about culture, nature, and travel; photography has come to define my travels as one central focal point to express appreciation for the incredible world we live in.

I grew up and went to college in Louisiana and initially left the USA to move to China, but after a year and a half there departed to wander down a path that would eventually lead to Central Asia and Bishkek. When not traveling or taking photos, I can often be found drinking coffee and reading on the balcony of my 6th floor apartment overlooking one of Bishkek's central squares.

I specialize in creating travel-related media, from on-site engagement/honeymoon photography in exotic locales to travel articles and photo sets highlighting international destinations. When not in Central Asia, I'm based primarily in the Texas Hill Country area.
