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.
