Painting by Jeff Zimmermann

Joerg’s photography is narrative by nature, encompasses environmental portraits, landscape, documentary, editorial and fine art photography. Point him in any direction for a travel assignment and he will happily hit the road.

Born and raised in the Harz Mountains of Germany, Joerg worked as dental technician before moving to Ireland herding goats, photographing and painting. Finding himself in Los Angeles he attended Santa Monica College of Design, Art and Architecture, and later graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago with a BFA in Photography and Visual Communication. He has worked for various design firms and agencies in Chicago, including his own.

One of Joerg’s current projects is Picturing Evanston.
