Barry Elz

For more than 35 years Barry Elz has been creating sports and lifestyle images professionally with studios in his hometown of St. Louis and in Chicago and New York City.

Although he was formally educated in fine art and design, Barry found photography to be the medium which led to numerous campaigns and credits in publications such as Time Magazine, Sporting News and Sports Illustrated as well as commercial interests as  Nike, Gatorade and Callaway Golf.

Beginning as a photographer for the St Louis Cardinals baseball allowed him to expand his interest in sports, culminating in the publishing of a portrait book of the Michael Jordan Era of the Chicago Bulls, that made the New York Times Best Seller list.

"I have been fortunate to travel extensively on assignments to work with the top talents in their fields, in the sports world from Hank Aaron to Michael Jordan and models such as Kathy Ireland and Cindy Crawford. These high profile experiences broaden one's ability to sense and capture the significant moment, whether using carefully sculpted lighting in a studio or natural ambient light on location"  Barry Elz
