Ernst-Ulrich Schafer

Founding Member – Inner Light Photographic Society

I love the history of photography and it inspires me everyday as I try and find my own voice. l first started studying photography at Clark College in Vancouver, WA with Professor Roger Baker. I met Master BW Photographer Shedrich Williames in Portland, OR who inspired me to become an artist. I became a founding member of the Inner Light Photo Society in 1986. I was also a member of the Portland Photographers Forum.

I’ve been working on “Personal Projects” for well over 40 years now, with many one man shows and group shows.  For the last 20 years I’ve been involved in Fine Art BW Portraiture, I can’t believe how exciting it’s been. 

I am currently in the process of publishing my first BW book.
