Brian Zwit is a nature and outdoor photographer and educator based in northern Virginia. He loves to photograph the elegance and majesty of nature and he especially likes to photograph landscapes but avoids the well-known locations, preferring instead the solitude of the backcountry. He looks for new and creative ways of presenting landscapes, including photographing them on real and instant film and post-processing them in new ways
While focusing on fine art nature photography, Brian also enjoys other genres of photography and has photographed protests, dogs, and city and street life. His images are exhibited in private residences and corporate offices and have been used in regional magazines and for corporate and international publications.
Brian has been teaching photography for more than ten years for workshop companies and non-profits, including the Ward Museum, Chincoteague Bay Field Station, and camera clubs in the mid-Atlantic. Brain is an exceptional Lightroom instructor and he has had more than 750 students attend his Lightroom training. Brian also speaks to camera clubs, schools, and other organizations on creativity and photographic techniques. He is well known for his ability to distill complex topics to their essence and explain them in simple, easy to understand ways.
Brian’s favorite assistant is Dingo, a Parson Russell Terrier, who really is not very helpful but is always ready for a walk in the woods. They are collaborating on a children’s book tentatively called What’s Dingo Thinking?. She also reminds him not to get too obsessed with photography and enjoy just being in nature.
