Utilizing all photographic formats and techniques, this award winning photographer has been able to master three distinct genres of photography: people, product, and now fine art with his Native Dance project. Meyer not only understands the creative but also the business of making pictures. His work has been published in Vogue, Bazaar, and GQ Magazines. Awards include American Institute of Graphic Arts, Artist Guild of Chicago, Art Directors LA, and Best of Show Photoworks '99. His clients have included Toyota, Mazda, Leo Burnett, Alberto Culver, Lands End, Coke, and 7 Up.
Meyer has been responsible for innovative catalog and commercial work in Chicago, Los Angeles and now New York.

Highly regarded for his ability to give static imagery a degree of depth and believability, Meyer's work remains strategically balanced between the commercial and artistic worlds. After 20 years of operating a successful studio in the mid-west, Meyer took time away from commercial shooting to acquaint himself with the latest in technology. Putting his energies into teaching, mentoring and his fine art project with Native Americans, he has reemerged in the forefront of his profession.
Meyer has recently relocated to the coasts with studios in New York and Los Angeles. He continues to pursue the commercial assignments and the growing opportunities offered him within the photo community.
