RECENT ARCHITECTURAL PHOTOGRAPHY ASSIGNMENTS

The Homestead Hotel in Evanston

     

Nestled on a quiet leafy street in suburban Evanston, The Homestead is a boutique hotel with a European ambiance. During a

recent photo shoot, I tried to capture the warmth and intimacy of the property. The hotel’s veranda is a special place, surrounded

by nature and the gentle chirping of birds.

 

Luxury Vacation Rental Unit in River North

As a Chicago architectural photographer I am asked to photograph a wide range of properties including residential, commercial,

hotels, and restaurants. I photographed this upscale vacation / corporate rental apartment in Chicago’s River North neighborhood

for the G2G Collection. What is unique about this company is that it donates a percentage of its income to the charity of your choice.  

So while you are relaxing on a tropical beach or taking in the view of the Golden Gate Bridge at sunset, you know you are helping

underprivileged kids or breast cancer research.  This residence has an eye-popping view of downtown Chicago and was located

just steps away from the hottest restaurants and clubs.  residential photos

 

Transwestern Commercial Real Estate

For the past several years, I have been photographing commercial real estate for Transwestern.  Recently, I had the opportunity to

shoot office complexes, shopping centers and strip malls in some of the lesser-known Midwest vacation meccas.  These include

Schaumburg IL, Blaine MN, Columbus IN, and Southfield and Farmington Hills MI. As an architectural photographer, I appreciate

these types of assignments because they offer a wide range of photo possibilities. real estate photos

 

Revival Social Club

Not long ago the Revival Social Club opened in Chicago’s Edgewater neighborhood.  The owners wanted to bring a retro environment

to the neighborhood where people could hang out comfortably in a warm and inviting setting.  The interior was conceived by

Platinum Interior Design of Chicago and they hired me to get architectural photos of the cozy interior.  I often photograph 

interiors of restaurants as well as food and drinks. The menu offers an abundance of breakfast and brunch options, but also

an array of enticing comfort food for lunch and dinner.  Come hang out for coffee or a drink and you will feel like it’s your own

private club. restaurant photos

 

Chicago Optima Center

I did comprehensive architectural photography of the new Optima Chicago Center luxury apartments in the Streeterville neighborhood

just prior to them coming on the market. The architectural photographs were used in the initial marketing campaign. These well-designed

units have heart-stopping views of Chicago’s near north area and the lake. This is an amazing and inspirational city for a Chicago architectural photographer.  residential photos
