is a Los Angeles native who grew up in a family of artists, discovering photography at 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 22 year career for his work’s enduring (and endearing) use of metaphor and hand crafted, trick-the-eye-elements. Hugh 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 Trayler and Traylor in Europe for his commercial work and by Fotografenwerk in Düsseldorf, Germany for fine art.
