Schwartzberg is a visual artist breaking barriers, connecting with audiences, and telling stories that celebrate life and reveal the mysteries and wisdom of nature, people and places.

His recent theatrical releases include the 3D IMAX film “Mysteries of the Unseen World” with National Geographic, narrated by Forest Whitaker, and the Disneynature feature “Wings of Life”, narrated by Meryl Streep. “Mysteries” is a journey into invisible worlds that are too slow, too fast, too small and too vast for the human eye to see. In partnership with the National Science Foundation, Lockheed Martin, and Siemens, the film opened in major cities in 2014 to rave reviews from audiences and experts alike.

Designed to inspire, educate and perhaps even evolve our perspective on the world, Schwartzberg creates and curates unique Moving Art™ content which can be found practically everywhere, from your local theater to the smart phone in your pocket to Roku and Netflix (Moving Art™ was the first Ultra HD (4K resolution) content to appear on Netflix along with House of Cards). Several of the film shorts have gone viral - including “Gratitude” and “Beauty of Pollination” with 36MM+ web views – and spawned related media (books, webinars, and more). Custom Ultra HD Moving Art™ pieces created by Schwartzberg can also be found in high-end hospitality venues around the world starting in 2014.

For Schwartzberg, the greatest satisfaction is creating works that can have a positive effect on the future of the planet.“I hope my films inspire and open people’s hearts.Beauty is nature’s tool for survival – you protect what you love.If we can move enough people on an emotional level, I hope we can achieve the shift in consciousness we need to sustain and celebrate life.”

Two of Louie’s most recent TEDx Talks, “Nature. Beauty. Gratitude” and “”The hidden beauty of pollination”, are often cited as the top TEDx views of all time.


Private Group Field Trip with Louie -  An exclusive opportunity to spend a morning with Louie shooting beautiful imagery at selected locations on Turtle Bay’s acres of lush land.

  • This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to learn from the best. This special 12 person, intimate group is for experienced photographers. Guests will be expected to bring their own equipment and be ready to shoot with Louie for a morning. In Louie’s own words…”I will talk about some basic creative photography tips like adjusting depth of field, focus, composition and lighting. But more importantly how to capture the emotion you feel at the decisive moment of squeezing the trigger. Finding images that connect with universal rhythms and the deepest part of your soul. How your mind and the sensor need to be open to anything, without judgment, waiting in the dark for light to strike, always in a state of readiness.”
