Saint Pete Photo is publishing a cross-country photography book later this year comprised of landscape and architectural photos from New Mexico, Arizona, California, Louisiana and Nevada.
“I’ve always wanted to explore the U.S. and photograph as I went,” says Saint Pete Photo founder Christian Schwier, a professional Tampa photographer for over seven years. “The open roads and countryside were beautiful. It really inspired our photography team to keep shooting.”
Always experimenting to create unique images, Christian and the team captured photos from the street to the sky using a Canon 7D camera with a variety of lenses including: Canon’s 16-35mm 2.8L, 24-70mm 2.8L and Rokinon’s 8.5mm fish-eye. The team’s drive to produce interesting photography has helped Saint Pete Photography become known as Tampa’s most innovative photography studio.
“We got pictures of every state sign along the way,” Christian says. He and assistants Jeff Zampino and Jamie Parslow took over 3000 photos and says that the Grand Canyon was the highlight of the trip. “The New Mexican desert also provided a great backdrop for some amazing photographs,” he shares. “The long exposure shots in the desert turned out so well because there is very little light pollution, and the stars are extra bright.” Along with shots of the Milky Way, they also caught a shooting star.
The photography crew promises the book will be top-notch and plans for it to be available in time for the holidays.
