Welcome to the photography of Ernest J. Schweit . I am a fine art photographer passionate about creating beautiful images that will take your breath away.
I love exploring the natural world and using my camera to communicate what I see.
My favorite spots are the forests and lakes of the midwest, the deserts of Arizona, and the rugged California coast.
I love to get up before dawn and make beauiful images in the early morning light. I nap during mid day, so I can save my energy to catch the "golden hour" of late afternoon and the sunset.
I hope you take a few minutes to check out my work. Feel free to leave comments or to ask questions in the comments section on the About page, which you can reach by clicking the button on the bottom of this page.
In this month's blog, I reveal how some advice from Tom Hanks--and my wife-- helped me overcome a creative rough patch, which in turn led to the creation of this image, "Rollins Roadside."
