Photography has been a lifelong passion for Brooks de Wetter-Smith.
His grandfather immigrated to the United States from Estonia with his family and his camera, making a living as an artist
in a foreign culture. Brooks has kept the family tradition alive, taking his camera across the globe on personal
and professional expeditions. His photographic instincts have led him to unexpected places -- from the peaks above Mt.
Everest Base Camp to the Amazon rain forest; the Peruvian Andes to the deserts of Syria, Jordan, and Egypt; to the American
Southwest; from his family roots in Estonia to the High Arctic and the desolate and virtually uninhabitable domain of Antarctica.
