ABOUT ILO (ee-l-o)
Born in Hamburg (Altona), Germany I spent my early years inspecting everything from the ground to the sky, life on a farm. I landed in the USA, fumbled in the suburbs and cut my teeth on gritty Manhattan.
I spent more than fifteen years in the Cable TV industry wearing a corporate hat working for entertainment giants like Viacom and Showtime. From 1995 to 2010 I ran my own business “creating” professional websites and software applications, with a focus on nonprofits and giving back. I have a long history in technology and throughout the years I’ve worked extensively with other people’s “images”.
In 2009 I transitioned into the business of photography. Mostly self-taught, I have a wealth of courses and workshops under the tutorage of professional photographers to enhance my technical and creative skill sets. Every day for me is a study in this fine art of photography. I draw heavily on the best practices garnered from professional organizations, industry experts and years of running my own business. My work has shown around Seattle, in a number of galleries, has won awards and has been published in print and online.
Key ingredients to success are knowing my clients and having a thorough understanding of their projects. Be it a stunning landscape, the beautiful lines of an architectural masterpiece, or the worn, weathered lines on a homeless man's face — the goal, always, is to create the best images possible — images that fully represent and support your mission.
