I am Inge Schoeman. I am a Photographer.
One of my most favourites quotes is William Blake’s “To see a world in a grain of sand, and a heaven in a wild flower, to hold infinity in the palm of your hand and eternity in an hour”. Mr Blake’s words illustrates for me what I experience when I capture the world around me with my camera.
I fell in love with my first camera, bought second-hand with my hard-earned waitering money, as a high school girl in South Africa. From taking pictures for the school newspaper, friends’ birthday parties, my first tentative travels into the world and for art projects… the love affair with the sound of the shutter, the music of light and captured images blossomed.
After high school I obtained a Diploma in Photography from the Prestige Colleague in South Africa and soon had my first ‘job’ as a photographer onboard a luxury cruise liner racking up more experience while savouring the beauty of the Caribbean.
And life happened, love happened and wonders happened and now I am blessed to be living and working in the beautiful city of Toronto, Canada. Happily continuing my love affair with the camera and finding fulfilment and joy in helping others capture their loves, their lives, their promises, and their significant moments into lasting memories that will continue to remind them of the beautiful abundance of life.
And while working with people is my first love, I happily take snaps of my second love..food! Vibrant, colourful, scrumptious food is simply delightful to photograph and I hope it shows in my work. And a few other loves as well… just taking photos of everything needed to be captured.
Please feel free to browse my site and the different categories of my work. Looking forward to hear from you soon. Let’s capture lasting memories together or simply capture something that is important to you.
