It’s not unusual to find Peter Schafrick ankle deep in paint or oil or spirits. With a penchant for planned spontaneity, Peter is a product specialist who shoots liquids splashed and poured in air. The resulting photos of dynamic sculptural forms are imbued with an aesthetic lustre that elevates commercial representation to high art.
On the digital cinema side, his dazzling splashes and pours are filmed in ultra slow motion using very sophisticated high-speed camera technology. Capturing the beauty of liquids moving through space, Peter’s film work completes a product offering now suitable for multiple platforms—from print to television, from moving billboards to the web.
Peter’s interest in capturing fluids in motion arose out of still life work intent on revealing the hidden vitality of objects at rest. With a portfolio as strongly represented by still lifes as by liquids, he continues to shoot product stills reverberating with a clean, elegant, modern sensibility. Peter displays the gifted autodidact’s passion for his craft and willingness to experiment. The excitement he brings to working ideas into striking new images stands behind his growing list of high-profile clients and an international reputation for innovation. His work has received several major international awards and been featured in leading publications on photography.
