Michael Weschler has been making pictures since 1975, when he started doing portraits of his friends at the age of seven with a Kodak 110 camera. After studying Architecture, Michael switched to Fine Art Photography at Cal State University & began showing his photographs, installations, and 20×24 Polaroids in galleries. After gaining experience working alongside high-profile photographers like Peggy Sirota, the larger assignments gave him the confidence to quickly rise as a renowned photographer in his own right. Known for capturing the detail, personality, and moment that make a photograph unforgettable, Michael is now highly sought after to collaborate with other talented creatives. His Portrait work includes notable personalities: Richard Gere, Liam Neeson, Liev Schreiber, Don Cheadle, Isaac Mizrahi, LeAnn Rimes, Meredith Vieira, Carrie Underwood, Wolfgang Puck, John McEnroe, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus to name a few. His Editorial work has run in magazines such as GQ, Vogue, Oprah, Allure, Life, Newsweek, Stern, Men’s Health, Dwell, Food & Wine and more. He has worked collaboratively on many books and his pictures have been included in Photography textbooks, most notably, “Photography in Focus”. Michael has captured interiors for Giorgio Armani, Ferragammo, and Frederic Fekkai as well as The Gramercy Park Hotel, Grand Hyatt, Liberty Hotel & Hotel Carlton. His Portrait & Lifestyle work has also graced the covers of many magazines such as U.S. News & World Report, and he works frequently for such high profile newspapers as The New York Times. Recent Ad campaigns include Nestle, Marriot, Bank of America, and National Car Rental. His personal work has been exhibited in art galleries and museums from LA to NY to Paris, and he is a professional member of American Society of Media Photographers, along with American Photographic Artists. Recent photography awards include two Honorable Mentions in The International Photography Awards and grants to teach Photography from The California Arts Commission. Michael has a studio in Manhattan, and travels frequently with his cameras to Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, and around the world.
