About David W Schafer

Greetings and thanks for visiting my site!

I was born and raised in Northwestern Missouri on a diversified crop and livestock farm.  I have always had a passion for livestock, education, travel, and photography.  Consequently, I went to school for about as long as one can completing a B.S., M.S., PhD, and a Post-Doctorate.  I have been fortunate in my career to combine all four of my passions. 

My career has taken me from Missouri to Colorado and Arizona.  I consider myself truly blessed to have earned opportunities which have allowed me to combine my four passions.  I like to carry my camera with me on the job to capture everyday ranch life and other special and unique moments.    

I also enjoy traveling and seeing the world, particularly livestock production systems and the variety of breeds across the different states and countries.  My travels have taken me to all the western and mid-western United States as well as most of the Southern & Eastern states and thirteen foreign countries on six different continents.  Highlights of my travels include an African photo safari, cruises down both the Amazon and Nile Rivers and black water rafting in New Zealand.   
My photos have been featured on covers of several Arizona Cattlelog magazines, numerous ads, calendars, and on the covers of several agricultural reports.  I have also received “Best of Show” awards in the professional divisions for photos entered in the various Arizona fairs and festivals. In 2011, I was honored to be selected as the featured artist for the Arizona National Livestock Show. 

However, my greatest reward is seeing someone’s face light up when they look at one of my photos and remember special moments or people in their life. 

My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.


My work and travels are my inspiration.  I love it when someone tells me a memory that one of my photos provides!


I carry my camera with me at work and on travels.  I love capturing shots of everyday ranch life and other unique moments, scenery and culture.
