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 […]

About a month ago, FreshLens Chicago, a photography program for teens in under-resourced areas of the city, held a fundraiser.

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. […]

It’s been a busy summer for private photowalks! This time around I met up with two ladies from Philly who either have never been to Chicago or haven’t been here in many years. So much fun having the opportunity to show them some of Chicago’s best architecture. We started with the relatively new Calatrava sculpture, […]

JGMA recently commissioned me to photograph some behind-the-scenes shots of video production of Jacob Jonas The Company at their NEIU designed site. What a great backdrop for this video, which was produced by Alex Horner and featured tap dancer Jumaane Taylor. Much of the video was produced in the hallway. A nice way to silhouette […]
