He's won awards from ASMP, PDN, Rangefinder, Professional Photographer Magazine, and others. His professional clients include Asics, Adidas, Volvo, OHSU, PSU, and Lensbaby, and his work has been published in the likes of National Geographic, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and more.
His personal projects, including Astra Velum, Quite Normal, Welcome to Wonderland, and Skeleton in the Closet, are shown, published, and collected internationally. (View his fine art work here.)

Love in Action
Fritz Liedtke is hands down the best photographer I have had the pleasure of working with. If you see his work, it is clear he is extremely talented; but what sets him apart from the rest is how he functions before, during, and after the shoots.
Fritz’s attention to detail makes all the difference between a shoot that provides a handful of good shots and a shoot that delivers a solid bank of excellent photos for digital and print needs.
Fritz has a great zen like aura that puts the subjects at ease...
Fritz is always quick to deliver our assetsectations. He takes the time to ask for feedback and is great about suggestions on how to improve future shoots whether it is location or model choices, he thinks ahead to ensure each photo shoot is better than the one before.
~Claudine Slater, OHSU
We recently worked with Fritz for ten full days over a one month period, at locations across the country. Staff everywhere found him great to work with, and I agree. Here are some of the things they said about working with Fritz:
Fritz is an open-minded and talented artist who makes his subjects comfortable in front of the camera and captures their essence in his beautiful photography.
Planning and communication was easy. He communicated with us several times prior to the shoot to ensure our needs and expectations were met.
He was knowledgable about the industry, and talented.
His flexibility and willingness to travel with short notice was great.
Fritz was efficient, professional, and friendly throughout the preparation and day-of shooting.
Fritz worked quickly and efficiently with editing and delivery of photos after the shoot. Additionally, he was consistently available for any questions or needs after the completed project.
~Carrie Hunnicutt, Oliver-Pyatt Centers, Monte Nido & Affiliates
he captures soulful, fine-art portraits in a way few others do.
Fritz is a visionary photographer, incredibly hard-working, producing work that truly stands out and tells a powerful story.
