George Elsasser holds a BA in Art, had early recognition from Robert Heinecken, Emmet Gowin, & George Krause as juror's in shows at venues such as the Chrysler Museum of Art & NYU. His work received 6 solo and has been included in 11 group shows. In 1997 he received a 20-Yr. Retro at the Hermitage Foundation Museum, Norfolk, VA.
In 1989 he left full time work to give himself completely to photography. At that time he did 1 yr. of graduate work towards an MFA & took education courses. Through 1996 worked as a freelance photographer, taught at Virginia MOCA, PFAC in Newport News, Virginia.
In 1996 he discovered couples looking for photographers who used candid approaches to weddings. Capturing the action was interesting to him. Some travel for this work included Tortola & L.A. In 2008 he began an extended sabbatical from such work.
Elsasser continues his work, which includes a strong foray into street photography since 2008.
