Jackson Avenue Pub – June 25, 2012

After hearing the rumors about a new restaurant / bar opening in the former space of the Grumpy Bulldog at 7 West Jackson Avenue  in west suburban Naperville, I was excited to be asked to photograph the newly renovated space.  Though the owners were still diligently working on some final touches when I was there, the place was already looking great (and all the new kitchen & bar equipment looked eager to start making food and serving some great beer).  Their menu consists of a large variety of specialty burgers and craft beer.

Momentum Group – Neocon Wine Tasting

I had the opportunity to photograph the Momentum Group’s Wine Tasting Event in their Merchandise Mart showroom last week during Neocon.  The showroom & their product both looked great and provided a very exciting & colorful background the photographs.  The time  flew by while I was there, and I had a great time!   Below are a few of my many favorites (in no particular order) from the afternoon’s shoot.  The entire gallery can be accessed at the following link: http://photography.studioats.com/p112074333   I hope you enjoy browsing through them as much as I had documenting the...

Chicago – October 8, 2011

Chicago – October 8, 2011

After catching up on some overdue matting and framing a number images, and having a rare afternoon of no appointments/deadlines, I took advantage of the unseasonably nice weather to wander around and photograph the always photogenic city of Chicago.  With a high of 81 degrees and fully sunny, I couldn’t have asked for better weather.   Since I had the non-typical role of being a passenger instead of the driver, I was able to start my observations off from a passenger window and the sunroof.  The mid-day sun enhanced the detailing to help create this abstract architectural shot: Chicago Abstract (Please Click the Image to Enlarge and/or View Purchase...

Apple Store’s Tribute to Steve Jobs – October 8, 2011

Apple Store’s Tribute to Steve Jobs – October 8, 2011

Just three days after Steve Job’s untimely death, the already recognizable Apple store facade had been transformed into a colorful tribute to Apple’s founder & savior.  I was, and remain, amazed at the content and sheer number of messages people were leaving on post-it notes stuck to the store’s windows.  The glass was nearly full of messages written on the popular, and colorfully diverse, 3″x3″ squares in a number of different languages.   While it is always sad when someone is taken (especially when they are still so relatively young), I can’t imagine a professional athlete, or movie star, or even a president or other...

Lukas Christening

I was fortunate enough to be able to photograph the Christening of Lukas last Sunday.  Having never been to a Christening before, it was definitely a learning experience.  I’m currently in the middle of processing the images, but am happy with how they turned out.  Here is a small sampling of the images. I plan to have the entire gallery uploaded by later this week.  Please contact Dave or Agnes for the password to view all of the images.

USGBC’s 6th Annual Emerald Gala

I had a great time photographing the USGBC – Illinois Chapter’s 6th Annual Emerald Gala at Soldier Field Saturday evening.  I have a lot of photos to go through, but I feel I captured some great images of the evening’s celebration.   Thanks to Doug, Karin, Joan, Katie, Pam, & all the volunteers for all the hard work they put into planning for the event.  Hopefully you were able to reach your fundraising goals for the evening.   It’s going to take around a week to post all the images in the gallery, but here are a few previews:   The full gallery with high resolution photos can be found...
