Historical Context:
Schmitz originally attended Grand Valley State University to play varsity tennis. It wasn't until after his freshman year that Schmitz took a photographic expedition of Mediterranean Europe and came home with not only an amazing experience, but also a clear direction for his future. After graduating from Grand Valley in 2006 with a degree in photography, Schmitz pursued a master's of fine arts degree at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, CA. He was then able to connect with top advertising agencies, magazines and designers. Schmitz began doing commercial photography after publishing his first student work in 2006 for CMYK magazine. He currently shoots for advertising agencies, celebrity fashion shoots, nationally published magazine editorials, fashion look books for designers, album covers for musicians, documentary spreads, and sells his fine art photography internationally to galleries and private collectors.
