My name is Susan Schroder and I am a Fantasy Art Photographer.
All elements of my art are original to me. I do all the photography ( I do not use stock photos!). And all the fantasy elements such as the fairy wings are digitally painted by me, as well. Almost all of my costumes are handmade and designed by me.
A little background about me:
My childhood was spent always in pursuit of something magical and mythical. As a young adult, I studied both fine art and photography at Arizona State University. Then, for over 20 years I chronicled my imagination with paint, pencil, ink, clay and film. All my life, I have viewed this world with the eyes of an artist and my love of fantasy has never waned.
I now blend my talents as both artist and photographer and through technology I am able to meld them together, creating an ethereal world where all are welcome to venture.
I love to spend time traveling and I take these opportunities to photograph all of my backgrounds.
I explore every nook until I find secret places overlooked by most people.
In my galleries you will see backgrounds from here in the United States and also internationally from such magical places as England, Scotland and the now legendary New Zealand.
