Stephen Weaver is an award winning photographer with over 30 years experience making images of the natural world. Educated as a geologist, Steve combines his scientific knowledge with his photographic abilities to produce stunning images that illustrate the structure and composition of the earth and its natural systems. These images are produced for the editorial and advertising markets. Steve's more recent emphasis is making powerful evocative images for the fine-art print market. Steve's use of a 4x5 large format view camera allows him to capture images with amazing clarity and depth and allows him to produce large incredibly sharp prints.
Steve grew up in Pennsylvania and from an early age developed a passion for nature and the outdoors. As an undergraduate geology student he first visited the Rocky Mountains where he fell in love with the mountain environment and the wide open grand landscapes of the west. Steve currently photographs throughout North America with a major emphasis on mountain and desert environments. He lives close to the mountains in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Steve started Earth Systems Imaging to market and promote his work. Some of his clients include the Geological Society of America, The Colorado Mountain Club, The Colorado College, and WW Norton. More examples of his work can be seen at his web site: http://www.stephen-weaver.com/
