Fulton Labs (400 N Aberdeen) | ESG Architecture & Design

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 […]

New Images – Cloudscrapers

Tuesday I had the opportunity to do a one-on-one photowalk with a woman that wanted a little guidance on some technical aspects, as well as compositional elements, of architectural photography. We had such a great couple of hours together and I think we both learned a few things! One of the benefits of teaching…it never […]

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 […]

Stir Desk Shoot

I was recently commissioned for a very cool, kinda crazy, commercial shoot for Stir. They wanted their desk to tour some of Chicago’s key architectural locations leading up to NeoCon 2015 for a web-based campaign. Their desk has a very sleek, minimalistic design and fits quite well with the architecture we visited.  It has an […]

Honorable Mentions: PX3 2015 Awards

2015 px3 awards

It’s quite an honor to share my two Honorable Mentions in the 2015 Prix De La Photographie Paris (PX3) Awards! A little surprisingly for the color work I submitted. My Harmonic series from my first visit to the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles last year was one HM. And the other was Urban Canyon, […]

Cloudscrapers

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 […]

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 […]
