Hello I am Lou Meluso from Chicago. I was raised in Jersey City, N.J. While in the U.S. Army, in the mid 1970's, I got bit by the photo bug and learned a lot from the local camera club. I have been a professional photographer for the last thirty-five years. I am currently the Director of Imaging Technology at the Art Institute of Chicago. I've worked in commercial, corporate and museum photography for many years. I have B.A. and M.S. degrees in Photography from Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara, CA. My specialties are technical photography, digital imaging and color science. I use digital Sinar, Betterlight and Canon DSLR cameras in my professional work but for my creative image making, I enjoy shooting with Sony A7, A7RII, A6000 and RX100II digital gear. I print with Epson printers. Please take a look at my gallery of creative work and thanks for stopping by.
