Looking Up

The third post from my little visit to Chase Tower last week. This one is all about looking up, which is typically what you’ll see me doing while out photographing. Chase Tower is the 11th tallest building in Chicago and the tallest inside the actual Loop. It’s a massive concrete building but with it’s sweeping, […]

Urban Angles

In my last post about Aqua I mentioned I met up with some photographer friends over the weekend. While we spent a good amount of time photographing Aqua we also wandered past Trump Tower, the riverwalk and the Lake Shore East neighborhood. One of my favorite buildings from the afternoon was the Blue Cross Blue […]

Aqua Abstracts

After Saturday’s Out of Chicago Photography conference sessions wrapped up there was a little bit of light left so I decided to get those abstract shots of the Radisson Blu Aqua building I’ve been meaning to do for quite a long time. I rented the telephoto 70-200mm lens knowing my usual 24-70mm just isn’t long […]

Vanishing Point in SHOTS Magazine, no. 128

I’m overjoyed to share that my image, Vanishing Point, from the White City series has been published in the most recent issue of SHOTS Magazine!!! This magazine continuously publishes images from exceptional photographers and to be included with some of my favorite artists is beyond thrilling! Thank you for sharing in my excitement!!!


A couple weeks ago I was in the loop for a short time trying to figure out what to photograph for the day. I normally go into a day of shooting with a plan of attack but my morning was spent taking head shots for everyone in Brady’s office so I didn’t actually think I […]

Leaves Hung In The Stillness

Today marks the death of Daniel Burnham (June 1, 1912), mastermind behind the 1893 World’s Fair and pioneer in urban planning. If it weren’t for his vision of what a city could be who knows if Chicago, or other urban environments, would have evolved to be what they are today…lively areas full of beautiful parks, […]

Limo Tour with Out of Chicago Photography

Despite last night’s dismal weather, rain, wind and way-too-cold temps for the end of May, Out of Chicago Photography had a fun limo tour. We were lucky enough to start the night in the House of Blue’s Foundation Room which is a private, members-only club full of lavish decor. The walls are covered in this […]

Deloitte – Chicago

Deloitte Chicago

I was in the loop this morning taking head shots of a few people from Brady’s office, not something I do very often, and then had about an hour to kill before I had to get back home.  I didn’t have any grand plans, but he’s about a block north of the Deloitte building which always […]

Northwestern University Segal Visitors Center

It’s been a very long time since I’ve taken a day to photograph sans kids. I need to get back to a more regular, focused shooting schedule and today was the first time moving back in that direction. I know, I write about this predicament a lot…finding/making the time is hard, really hard, and for […]

The White City Update

I finally made a decision about which Rookery and Palmer House images to add to The White City series, thought I’d give you a little update… Daniel Burnham and John Root’s Rookery office was where many meetings were held regarding the 1893 World’s Fair so it seemed like a key location to include in the […]
