O’Hare Terminal 5 Garage | Clayco

Last week I had the fun of photographing the in-progress shots of O’Hare’s T5 garage for Clayco. I don’t do a lot of construction shoots but they’re always a lot of fun when I do have the opportunity. It’s pretty impressive to see this aspect of what goes into building the structures around us.

Burberry at Night

There are a handful of Chicago buildings I’ve been meaning to shoot for quite a long time and keep procrastinating on it because I truly hate using a tripod. Particularly, for abstracts.
