i am a working artist is the running photo blog of ian d merritt and IDMPhotography.
The name “I am a working artist” is culled from years of creatively working at his trade while maintaining a living. It has been a mantra for Ian as his career has morphed through advertising, marketing, and editorial industries. There is a fine line between being a creative artist and meeting clients needs. In art school, most kids slept through the class on how to maintain your principals while succeeding as a creative professional.
Ian D Merritt is a professional photographer based in
Chicago specializing in commercial, editorial, and vehicular photography.
