Chicago-based Glen Gyssler is a nationally recognised photographer. His early reputation was built on conceptual studio imagery that led to a more crisp, illustrative style. His final images are often manipulated and enhanced in the post-digital work he creates.
Glen's recent work has expanded to include people, a welcome diversification he sees as a way of extending his range and style.
He currently produces a wide range of work, from annual reports to advertising campaigns. His many clients include Allstate, Budweiser, Firestone, Gatorade, Microsoft, Office Max, Olay, Philip Morris, Sprint, Visa and Wrigley.
