Bob Schamerhorn

I am an enthusiast not an expert…

BobSchamerhornPhotoBob Schamerhorn’s fascination with nature has been with him since childhood. This interest had him exploring everywhere from his neighborhood creeks in Lynchburg, Virginia, to the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, all the way to the salt-marshes of the Outer Banks. He is a fledgling of the Virginia Society of Ornithology (VSO) and the Lynchburg Bird Club of the 1970’s, which as a youth sponsored him twice to the Virginia Garden Club’s Nature Camp. He graduated from E. C. Glass High School in 1979 and attended college at Virginia Tech in the early 1980’s, where he studied Art and Design. Afterwards, Bob returned to his hometown and worked in several creative positions such as: engraver, canvas-painting artist, draftsman and graphic designer. He eventually married and bought a home in Bedford County, where he raised his son, Michael. In 1996, he started a business, Infinity Graphics, which specializes in website design, packaging design and start-up business branding. He has helped publish a couple of bird books and illustrated a few children’s books as well. Several of his photos have won awards and appeared in the publications of organizations such as Audubon’s Virginia IBA, eBird’s website and Nature Friend Magazine. Since 2006, he has maintained a weekly photoblog (www.iPhotoBirds.com) and every year since 2008, he has published a calendar with his nature photography. Bob is currently a resident of Richmond, where he lives with his new wife, best friend, and number one supporter, Lori. As an advocate of habitat conservation, he is a current member of the National Audubon and Hawaii Audubon Societies, the Colonial Nature Photography Club and VSO. He gets out with his camera to enjoy the birds and the outdoors at any opportunity that presents itself. He loves to share the beauty of God’s creatures, that it might bring an appreciation of nature to others.
