As a photographer, I am always looking for interactions and this can take many forms. Whether it is two individuals connecting with one another, groups of people interacting, or the natural ebb and flow in nature, I want to document these moments.
When working with clients, I strive to ensure that their vision is realized, and their stories are told in a genuine and honest manner. I balance my work between commercial clients, non-profit organizations, and trying to give back to the community. This has included work for Habitat for Humanity, The Seirra Club, and Prints for Prints.
Everybody has a story to tell. Let me help you tell yours.
I was supposed to be a musician. When I was 23, I went on tour in Europe with a band and bought a DSLR, because a point-and-shoot didn’t seem worthy of my first trip overseas. That’s where my interest in photography started. I had so much fun documenting our trip through photos. When I got home, I started assisting with a photographer friend while working full-time at a coffee roastery. Eventually, I quit my day job to start my own business as a wedding and portrait photographer.
I’ve been lucky enough to work for lots of great restaurants, chefs, architects, and designers all over the country, as well as publications like Esquire, Bon Appetit, Food & Wine, People magazine, Atlanta magazine, Garden & Gun, and The Wall Street Journal. I live in Atlanta with my wife, Kate, and our daughter, Alice.

I was a contractor once upon a time, working closely with designers of all kinds. My job still requires the same thinking: to produce work where craft and design combine without a seam.
Many more pictures are on Instagram and Tumblr.
My work spans many different genres – from shooting people to focusing on things we wear, the things we eat, to the places we live, to the things we love, and the things we crave. I love to capture it all. People ask me to help them tell stories through a lens. I can do that – I love it.

Photographer Joe Schmelzer might have taken an entirely different career path had it not been for Mohammad Ali.
While the bedrooms of his junior-high classmates were plastered with posters of Big Hair Bands and bigger-haired babes, not so Joe’s walls. Commanding the space above his twin beds hung only a framed black-and-white portrait of the history-making heavyweight — one of a limited edition signed by photographer Yousuf Karsh. Placed there by Joe’s father because (though "a solid investment") it absolutely did not go with the downstairs decor, the photo would impact Joe’s life more than anyone could have imagined: Under the shadow of The Greatest, Joe says, "Something just clicked." Nearly two decades later, Joe is an editorial and commercial photographer specializing in hotel, food, environmental and celebrity portraits…
