Paul Schlismann has been specializing in the intricate field of architectural and interior photography, including landscape design and aerial photography, since 1980. His work is often published in magazines and books for editorial and advertising purposes.

Educated with an appreciation for the design of architecture, Paul is able to recognize and dramatically portray the elements that aesthetically define the architecture or the space and their relationship to the project as a whole. His photographs are characterized by critical composition with an eye for detail and a complex style of lighting that both enhances the ambiance, as well as accentuating the design details of the structure or space.

Paul also photographs in the corporate and industrial markets, including travel photography - for annual reports, editorial, corporate brochures and advertising. Portraiture, industrial products, hi-tech labs and photography of large manufacturing plant interiors, are all within the scope of his extensive experience and expertise.

His business philosophy is to combine excellent quality photography and service, with a client relationship of communication, trust and reliability. Projects are completed within the expected time frames and budget parameters.

Paul is located both in Chicago and Arizona. The Midwest as well as the entire state of Arizona, Southern California and Las Vegas, are considered local territory. He is also available for national assignments.

For over fifteen years, photographer Paul Schlismann has served our company and provided us with excellence. I have worked with many photographer and I can assure you, Paul stands above the rest. His attention to detail is unmatched. He is truly a perfectionist, which simply translates into better images for our company. For me personally, what makes Paul unique is his attention to lighting a scene. The augmented lighting adds drama and depth to the scene. Honestly, the images he creates are better than the actual settings we've designed!
