Steve Aliberti grew up in Pittsburgh. From the age of two, he's ridden bicycles of all sorts in as many ways as possible. Summer camping trips to Algonquin park and a trip to the Canadian Rockies spurred Steve's lifelong interest in mountains. Skiing at Laurel Mountain and Seven Springs introduced him to snow sports. Employed at a small rock climbing gym throughout high school, Steve had a glimpse into the culture of climbing.

Steve's passion for photography is intertwined with his love of adventure. Reading the harrowing tales in climbing, mountain biking, and skiing magazines made him yearn for such adventure. Photos pulled from Transworld Snowboarding, National Geographic, Rock and Ice, and so many others captured his imagination. His pursuit of the mountain lifestyle led him to settle in Bend, Oregon. With a garage full of gear and the perfect home base, Steve now works to create images in hopes of inspiring the next generation of outdoor enthusiasts, environmentalists, and athletes.
