What a pleasure working with Booth Hansen to capture shots of both the exterior & interior of this beautifully designed condo in the West Loop. First up, a couple of shots at dawn. Getting a little more detailed from the street and sky. Now, for the interiors. Kitchen, staircase & rooftop views in the penthouse.
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 […]

When I first approached the building the late afternoon winter […]

I’m lucky enough to be part of their advisory board and I also donated a photowalk to the fundraiser. Today’s post is a result of that walk. I met up with three very fun ladies […]
