A beautiful summer day for the most recent private photowalk. We started the day in Millennium Park and lucked out with some great clouds reflecting in the Bean (Anish Kapoor). Despite it being summer and it usually being very busy, it was pretty calm when we arrived at 9am on a Monday, allowing this detailed […]

The first private photowalk of the season. It’s kind of feeling like spring…kind of. The forecast was looking promising but we had chilly temps and gray skies. Still, we had a great time and got some great shots all over the Loop. We started with something bright and cheerful, Calatrava’s Constellation sculpture at River Point […]

Just before Christmas, I stopped by the nearly complete Fulton Labs in the Fulton Market District. It was a warmish day with some great skies so I thought, despite the building not being fully complete, I’d stop by for at least a few drone shots. When I first approached the building the late afternoon winter […]

Lincoln Park Pavilion at Night

As I’m sure you’ve heard me mention once or twice, I generally hate using a tripod. Particularly for the more detailed and abstract perspectives of architecture. But, I’ve also wanted to shoot a number of architectural locations in this abstracted way at night or dawn/dusk. Oh the conundrum, because a tripod really is a must. […]
