A Los Angeles native who grew up in a family of artists, conceptual photographer Hugh Kretschmer has been recognized repeatedly for his work's enduring (and endearing) use of metaphor and hand crafted, trick-the-eye elements. 

An award-winning editorial and advertising photographer, Kretschmer's imagery has been featured in Communication Arts, the Graphis Photo Annual, Photo District News (PDN), Print Magazine and American Photography. 

Hugh's clients include Vanity Fair, New York Times Magazine, GQ, Esquire, Men’s Journal, Rolling Stone, Fortune, Golf Digest, Outside Magazine, Sony, Toyota, Kohler and Honda among others.
