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.
I was excited and suprised to receive news that a book of images I made of Wisconsin barns has been purchased by more than 4,000 people. Details on the book and my thoughts on the project to preserve a vanishing American icon in the new edition of my blog, Picture story. Click on the photo to read the blog.
