Long on my to-shoot list is The Bean in the snow. Last week we had lots of snow. And, after shooting the new St Regis for a client project I decided to make the short drive over to The Bean. By the time I arrived the little bit of sun we had, had disappeared and […]

The Bean

On a bit of a Chicago kick since I’m stuck here, we had to cancel our workshop and to make up for it I’ll be doing a little virtual tour of locations soon…stay tuned! In the meantime, I thought I’d share what is likely the most photographed location in the city, The Bean. The official […]

Last week I managed to check out the bean when the park was open…yay for checking the hours this time, lol! I got there pretty close to 8am, when it opens, to get the softer light and fewer people. There were only about 5 others there at that time. So weird to see such quietness […]

Weekend Wanderings

525 west monroe, chicago

We had a really beautiful fall weekend so I took the opportunity to photograph some locations I’ve been meaning to get to downtown and check out the Chicago Architecture Biennial at the Cultural Center. One of my first stops wasn’t planned, but the atrium looked interesting. As I expected, I was quickly asked to stop […]

If you’re not familiar with this event, CAF organizes a weekend full of […]

We met up with one of the first friends I ever made when we first moved to Milwaukee over 4 years ago. She wanted to squeeze in one more trip to Chicago before all the craziness of school consumes our lives, so we decided to spend a few hours roaming around Millennium Park! There is […]
