Stewart has been inspired by wilderness since was younger and growing up in Wallowa County, Oregon. He was surrounded by the Wallowa Mountains and Hells Canyon, which is the deepest canyon in North America.
After shooting band and concert photography with a local newspaper and also doing some wedding photography, he realized his real passion was landscapes. From there, he launched Shoot the Skies, where he shared his landscape photography and also published a photography book with that same name in 2013 where all the proceeds he donated to the A21 Campaign which helps to fight human trafficking all over the world.
Stewart says that the most challenging part of shooting landscape photography is the time constraint. He is what he had to say.
"The explorer inside of me wants to photograph the tallest mountain during the most intense thunderstorm with a herd of bison and the Milky Way. However, that obviously can't really happen, so you learn that sometimes 'wasting' time waiting for days on end in minus 10 degree weather to capture one photo is still worth it."
