Steve Shaluta Bio - Steve Shaluta Photography
  • Steve Shaluta Bio

Outdoor, nature, scenic and wildlife photography is my passion.

After nearly 15 years as a locomotive engineer I changed careers in 1985 to pursue a career as a professional photographer.  I accepted a position as tourism photographer for the WV Dept of Commerce in December 1985.  For nearly 30 years I photographed the scenic beauty, wildlife, tourist attractions, outdoor recreation and businesses in WV.  My tourism photography was used in hundreds of publications to promote the great state of West Virginia.

I have been the owner of Steve Shaluta Photography since 1978 and have pursued a freelance photography career separate from my WV Tourism job for going on 40 years.  From both careers I have had over 350 cover images, and thousands of images published in magazines, newspapers, brochures, billboards, books etc.  I personally am the author or co-author of 11 books including two 11x14 full color coffee table books about WV.

I retired in January of 2015 and I now pursue wildlife and bird photography almost exclusively, but still do an occasional freelance assignment and sell photograph from my website at www.steveshaluta.com.

I have been fortunate to have had a career that included my love of photography...life is good.
