Susheel Schroeder is a London based photographer specialising in portrait, family and lifestyle photography with a fine art approach. Her longer-term documentary photography projects focus on issues surrounding maternal health and identity.
We had the pleasure of talking to Susheel about her creative process, her message and what she's learned along the way.
Hi Susheel, can you talk a little bit about your background and how you got into family and lifestyle photography?
Although I’ve always loved taking photographs, it actually took a little while for me to start working as a photographer. I did a law degree and worked in finance before realising I needed to do something much more creative. After a short spell working in film production I went back to do a Masters in Documentary Photography. Along the way I started taking portraits, which later became family portraits and lifestyle content for brands. I feel so fortunate to work professionally doing something I love; especially as it also gives me the opportunity to work on some personal documentary projects.
