ABOUT

Hi,  Ernst-Ulrich Schafer here.  Thanks for visiting my site and I hope your enjoy the work I've posted here.

I've been a photographer for 40 years now.  When I lst started out I enjoyed working on "Personal Project" in BW, shoot film and spending lots of time in my wet darkroom.  I love the History of Photography and most nights you'll find me with my nosie in some sort of photography book.  Back in 1999 I bought my lst digital camera and became interested in doing portraiture. I had a chance meeting with an Icon in the Portrait Industry named Monte Zucker and took several classes with him. It has become such an exciting venture and each day I learn more.

Lots of folks here on the Peninsula voted for me as The Best On The Peninsula many times over.  I belong to the Professional Photographers of America and the Professional Photographers of Washington.  Many awards have come my way.  Portrait Photographer of the Year Washington State is my most cherished.

I collect BW images, photo books and add to my collection whenever I can. 

My wife of 35 years and I enjoy traveling, visiting our lst granddaughter, me working in our yard when time permits.  We both miss our Golden Girls and will be getting a new Golden Girl Puppy soon.
