I was recently commissioned to shoot 12 properties around Chicago for a real estate compliance company. They were looking for detailed/abstracted takes on their properties for marketing purposes. Always fun when my typical approach to shooting architecture is appreciated by companies like this. And a fun opportunity to shoot some buildings I may not have […]
Another fun shoot with Clune! This time, the 2-story offices of Chime located in Fulton Market. Lots of great detailing – the wood features, staircase, furniture. Here’s a closer look at that staircase!
It’s been a very long time since Out of Chicago (OOC) has had an in-person city conference. Just last week, the OOC crew put together a fantastic, intimate 4-day conference in Chicago. It’s always an honor to be a part of their events. The other instructors and the participants are always incredible. And, last week […]
Time for the student images from the recent Chicago workshop! Always a favorite post to share. So fun seeing the different interpretations made of the locations we visited together. Sandi Spaulding This was Sandi’s first workshop with me, so nice to have her explore Chicago and capture some unique takes on the Chicago Cultural Center, […]
Time for a look at some of the locations we shot during the Chicago workshop a few weeks ago! Always fun showing peope around my hometown. This year, I had a great group with everyone from out of town, mostly east coast and west coast and one from Indiana. We had, mostly, great weather. Friday […]
Long on my photo bucket list has been to shoot the Chicago skyline from the Indiana Dunes State Park. At certain times of the year, the sun sets directly behind the skyline and with a telephoto lens you can capture this stunning view. Last Friday, I finally got over there and lucked out with a […]
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. I feel like I lose all creative freedom because instead of seeing the compositions I’m so focused on the damn tripod. I’m sure […]
Last weekend I spent a couple of hours showing the teens of FreshLens some of Chicago’s great architecture. If you’re not familiar with FreshLens, it’s a program meant to bring the arts, specifically photography, to teens of under-resourced areas of Chicago. Upon completion of the intro course, each teen receives a camera to further their […]
Last Friday we finally had some sunshine, along with some pretty cold temps, which seems unavoidable in the winter. Oh well, despite the cold, I think I finally have a little project idea in mind. I need sunshine and clear skies so I had to take advantage of the right conditions. I’m not going to […]
I recently had the opportunity to shoot the Northwestern Memorial Hospital Simulation & Education Center in Lake Forest for Clune. Always so much fun shooting with them + this was an interesting and unique project covering a wide range of environments. From classrooms to operating rooms + the fun of the ambulance simulator.
