User Bio

Hugh Kretschmer is a Los Angeles native who grew up in a family of artists, discovering photography at the age of 13 under the guidance of his father, who was a photo-instrumentation engineer for McDonnell Douglas during the Mercury through Apollo missions. Recognized repeatedly throughout his 23 year career for his work's enduring (and endearing) use of metaphor and handcrafted, trick-the-eye elements. Kretschmer has achieved singular success as an editorial and advertising photographer who creates imagery that applies to both art and commerce. He is represented by Sharpe + Associates for his commercial work and Kathleen Clark Exhibitions in Los Angeles, and Fotografenwerk in Dusseldorf, Germany for fine art.
