George Lange’s work as a photographer is known all over the world. He grew up in Pittsburgh and now lives in Boulder, Colorado, though his career has taken him just about everywhere. After graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design, he worked for the legendary photographers Duane Michals and Annie Leibovitz before going out on his own. Since then, his work has appeared on movie posters; billboards; in numerous platforms for many major corporations; newspapers, including The New York Times,The Chicago Tribune  and USA Weekend; and in almost every major magazine, ranging from O: The Oprah Magazine, Entertainment Weekly, People, ADWEEK, Esquire, Glamour, Parade, and GQ to Self and Sports Illustrated. 

Lange has photographed everyone from Jim Carrey to Honey Boo Boo; from latex glove factories in Thailand to ice cream production in Columbus, Ohio; from the cast of Seinfeld to Cake Boss; from choreographers to jewelers. Lange is also an accomplished director, working on projects for One Kings Lane, Merrill Lynch and Jeni’s Ice Cream. His work is guided by one simple truth: an unforgettable photograph is not about what the image looks like, but what it feels like. Lange believes that when we do what we love and take pictures from the heart,  “all we’re doing is putting love out into the world” - a line heard by all subjects who have been in front of Lange’s camera.
