Stephen DiRado (born 1957) is an American photographer. His work is mostly black-and-white, and he makes frequent use of large-format cameras. He is most noted for his portraiture, night-astronomical photography, and semi-composed group photography, and for the extensive length of his projects.[1][2]

He has been the recipient of fellowships from the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation,[3] the Massachusetts Cultural Council, National Endowment for the Arts and the Massachusetts Artist Foundation.[4] He has taken part in solo and group exhibitions at venues including the DeCordova and at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. His work is held in both public and private collections and has appeared in print in The New York Times Magazine and Esopus.
