For the past fifteen years, I have found a niche taking pictures at sporting and community events. Since moving to Austin over five years ago, I have immersed myselff into the “Weird Austin” experience and taken many pictures of local importance. I have taken pictures for local events such as Dennis Quaid’s Texas Hold ‘Em and Golf Weekend, Look For Love Charity Event, and the Senior Olympic Games.
I also routinely travel for my work and have been fortunate enough to photograph some of Europe’s greatest architecture as well as Asia. I have an affinity for the lines and light that play around beautiful buildings and especially enjoy night photography. My travels include Paris, Vienna, Shanghai, Bangkok, Vancouver, Rome as well as around the US. However, my favorite subject is the Texas capitol! Typically, you will find me on the trails around Texas with my equipment. Please stop and say Hi!
I’ve become interested in HDR (high dynamic range) photography recently and have learned how to manipulate his images in Photoshop to intensify the colors to really make them “pop”. I routinely display my images at local coffee and wine shops.
In addition to my photography habit, I am the Principal and Owner of Schaffer Environmental LLC, an environmental consulting firm specializing in assessment and enablement strategies for regulatory environmental compliance.
