Steve Shaluta is a professional photographer based out of St. Albans, WV. He became interested in photography in 1978 after borrowing a friend’s 35mm camera to take nature photographs. The photography bug soon bit him and in 1985 after nearly 15 years working as a locomotive engineer in his hometown of Grafton, WV, he resigned to become a full time professional photographer. A decision he has never regretted.
Since 1985 Steve’s primary career has been as a staff photographer for the state of WV photographing its natural beauty and attractions to promote tourism. But he also has a very successful freelance photography career. Between both careers he has had literally thousands of images published over the last 31 years, including well over 300 magazine covers and to date 9 books.
