Los Angeles: Joe Schmelzer

Joe Schmelzer is an editorial and commercial photographer specialising in hotel, food, environmental and celebrity portraits. Recognised for the natural window-light quality of his images - and a knack for making even the prickliest subjects feel at ease - Joe is a familiar presence in the travel, shelter and entertainment markets.

His work has appeared in every major interiors-centric magazine, website and blog, and is regularly featured in the editorial pages of Architectural Digest, Elle Decor, Vogue UK, Sunset and Travel + Leisure. Joe also contributed the images (and lots of inspiration) to 'The First Apartment Book: Cool Design for Small Spaces' (Clarkson Potter, 2012), a collaboration with interior-stylist-to-the-stars Kyle Schuneman and style writer Heather Summerville.

Joe’s ability to help clients achieve their own creative visions has made him a sought-after commercial photographer for high-profile brands including Dorchester Hotel Collection, Sub-Zero/Wolf Appliances, O’ahu Visitors Bureau and Pottery Barn.
