Madeline Tolle is an American Photographer, who was raised in the suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. She earned a Bachelor's Degree in Art History from the University of Illinois. Following graduation, she moved to Philadelphia, PA to pursue a career in fashion. After several years of working in corporate fashion as a buyer, running her own jewelry line, and a series of events that make zero sense, but also perfect sense; she ended up working as a photographer focusing on commercial fashion and design projects. In the summer of 2017, Madeline moved to Los Angeles, where she now works full time as a freelance editorial photographer.

Her work focuses on highlighting the beauty of small moments of everyday life that are often overlooked amidst the chaos of the world around us. She is passionate about supporting small businesses, artists, and designers through her photography. Madeline has a curious mind and is open to exploring just about anything with her camera, but she is currently most interested in stories about the "American Dream," as it intersects with design and climate change.

Currently in LOS ANGELES
