George Steinmetz, an U.S. American photographer with a degree in geophysics from Stanford University. He has traveled to the world’s most remote corners for over 15 years. With his motorized paraglider, he flies above extreme locations and desert regions, photographing an almost surreal landscape aesthetics from a bird's eye view, capturing extraordinary aerial images of the natural artworks and wonders of our planet.

In 2013 in a comprehensive segment on his work, the German arts and culture television program "ttt - titel, thesen, temperamente" called his photographs "spectacular images of a flying adventurer". His photographs appeared regularly in international magazines such as Geo, National Geographic, Architectural Digest, Condé Nast Traveler and have also been published in books and photo collections. He has received numerous international awards for his work, including two first place prizes from World Press Photo and from Pictures of the Year, Alfred Eisenstaedt Awards, etc.. George Steinmetz, born 1957, lives with his family in New Jersey, USA.
