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 of the midwest, the deserts of Arizona, and the California coast.
I love to get up before dawn, load my camera gear in my backpack 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 just before evening.
When my gear is packed away, I love talking to people about my work, art or life in general. That's probably why you will find me showing my work at art fairs during the spring and summer months, and in galleries the rest of the year.
In between all that, you'll find me shooting.
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'd love to hear from you.
