Born in the lap of a vast Lake Constance in Austria, Ingo was introduced to the world of photography as a male model at the age of 18. His towering good looks made him a favorite subject of many famous photographers.
In his professional career, Ingo studied in the field of Quality Control and trained as a professional chef. But with the dawn of the age of the digital SLR, Ingo decided to pursue his passion and purchased his first camera.
Ingo and Jacky Liebe, his partner, started creating incredible images, sometimes doubling as models for their own shoots. His work with Jacky led to the creation of Schaman Photo Design (his professional brand) where they strive to create and capture beauty in every way possible.
When asked about his passion, Ingo said, “For me photography is a great balancer and it fulfills me emotionally and creatively. Nothing in life comes by chance, you have to stay focused on your goals. Originality is the secret sauce to every photographer’s success and having a great team is what makes an image great. An image is only as good as the idea behind it.The image always has the last word!”
He likes to work in bad weather to create something different and that’s what his images are famous for. Each of his images tells a story and engages the viewer while stimulating their senses. He has been a member of the Professional Association of Austrian Artists for about 3 years now and regularly conducts workshops to teach new photographers different styles.
