Fritz creates compelling images of people that are...a little bit different.


How did you get started?


When I was 14, my dad and I set out on a road trip across America. He drove our turquoise Datsun B210, and I documented our journey on my Kodak Instamatic. I also kept a journal of our adventures. That was where my life in photography began.


Later, I earned a degree from Pacific Northwest College of Art in Photography and Print. Today, my photographs are on magazine covers and in museums, and featured by folks like National Geographic and OHSU.


What do you do?


I create authentic portraits of people in their natural environment for businesses and magazines.


I capture genuine moments of care and compassion for the healthcare and non-profit world.


Why should we work with you?


Clients love working with me because they appreciate compelling photographs, clear communication, Zenlike photo shoots, and on-time delivery.


Whether we're working on stills or video, my team brings focus, energy, and humor into the room.


Our approach to each project is inquisitive and inventive; we’re always excited about creating the next great image.

What Our Clients Say…


Zen-like Aura


I have worked with many photographers on countless photoshoots for print and digital marketing initiatives. 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.


During the shoot, Fritz has a great zen like aura that puts the subjects at ease...and you can see the difference in the finished product. His team is just as great as he is. His assistants and make-up artists know when to jump in and jump back and are great to work with.


Fritz is always quick to deliver our assets and the finished product has always exceeded my expectations. 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.


When selecting team member for projects, I always choose Fritz as my photographer because I know he will always exceed my expectations.


~Claudine Slater, OHSU

A Visionary Photographer


Fritz's work speaks for itself - he captures soulful, fine-art portraits in a way few others do. We've always been drawn to Fritz's work because it's beautiful; but he also embodies the same spirit our company does - seeing in a new way, not being afraid to try new things.


Fritz is tireless, always willing to try another angle, always contributing his own ideas.

In short, Fritz is a visionary photographer, incredibly hard-working, producing work that truly stands out and tells a powerful story.

Efficient, Professional, Friendly


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.
