Kurt Shaffer Photopher

I would like to introduce a fine Photographer who in many words finds the fine touches we seldom see in photos. 
        Please enjoy the many things Kurt Shaffer brings to life.

 
 
It has been over 30 years since my father gave me my first camera.  Thinking back, I guess he probably felt that he would rather I broke my camera than his!  I immediately became obsessed with photography and the world it opened up to me.

Growing up I experienced living in different parts of the United States.  The west coast, the mid-west and now northeast Ohio.  I even spent two years in Hawaii during my tour of duty with the U.S. Navy.  And of course, the end result of moving around the country gave me a broader perspective on the world - one that is open to new things - especially the natural world.  I have always felt best outside, walking with my dad through natural settings.  And this was further encouraged through my involvement in Scouting.  


It all has given me a real appreciation of nature.  And being so sensitive to nature, I naturally react the same with people and animals.  I've always had pets of one kind or another, from all kinds of reptiles in high school (yes, snakes!) to dogs, cats, horses and birds!  So capturing the "natural you" comes naturally to me and is imperative, whether through a portrait or in a candid moment.

Since those early years, photography has become an extension of my personality.  I live and breathe it - it is what makes me happy! Today, I believe that photography has given me a true understanding of the power and vulnerability of nature in its purest form.  As I capture images that inspire and educate, my photography seems more important to me now than ever!
 My current home for the past 28+ years is beautiful Cleveland, Ohio.  Ohio and Lake Erie have some of the most beautiful landscapes, sunsets, springs, summers, autumns and winters as anywhere!  But don't take my word for it, check out the photos on this site!

Many contemporary homes are decorated with photography, yet photography isn't strictly for the modern home. With the variety of subjects covered by photography, you can decorate any room in your home or office.
