Susan V. Schroeder - Nature Photography from Heart and Soul 

Soul Centered Photography

Susan was born and grew up in southern Germany, the daughter of a Lutheran minister.
As a teenager, explorations into the deeper meaning of life led her to join an ashram (spiritual community) in 1979 at age nineteen. In 1987 she transferred to an ashram in the United States, where she was able to focus her attention on growing plants, eventually becoming the head grower of a large greenhouse complex.
She left the ashram in 1999 and established my own flower gardens and nursery. Being surrounded by so much beauty inspired her passion for nature photography, and reading the poetry of mystics such as Rumi and Hafiz has enabled her to explore deeper dimensions within her work.
