About Lippisch Visual Arts Commercial Photography
Lippisch Visual Arts owner Alex Lippisch began working as a commercial photographer in 1979, after graduating with honors from the Rochester Institute of Technology. Upon arriving in New York City, he quickly honed his skills assisting some of the preeminent studio photographers of the 1980s.
In 1989 Alex moved to Boston to accept the position of principal Photographer for McDougall Associates, an advertising and PR agency with $44 million in annual billing. While at McDougall, Alex shot national advertising campaigns for such Fortune 500 companies as Tyco International.
The year 2000 saw Alex relocating to Northeast Ohio where he opened his own studio, Lippisch Visual Arts. His 1,500-square-foot studio features high ceilings and drive-in access, and is conveniently located 20 minutes south of Cleveland just off Interstate 71 in Brunswick, Ohio.
As owner and creative force behind Lippisch Visual Arts, Alex counts among his many clients Sherwin-Williams, Hewlett-Packard, Cleveland-Cliffs, Marriott Hotels, Sylvania, and Gorton’s Seafood. He has had the good fortune to work with many talented art directors, and has contributed to numerous projects which went on to win Ad Club awards.
In addition to creating images, Alex is also a dedicated teacher for both the University of Akron and the Digital Photo Academy. For information on his classes click here.
Alex can be described as a careful and patient person who pays attention to the smallest of details. He cites the Bauhaus and Russian Constructivism movements, as well as Dadaist artists Marcel Duchamp and Man Ray, as significant inspirations.
“My goal is to work with my clients as a team member, bringing our ideas together to create dramatic, exciting and effective images.” — Alex Lippisch
