Last week I updated my website to include a new wedding section, with over a hundred new photos of brides and grooms tying the knot.
The weddings I had the privilege to witness over the summer covered a range of emotions and locations. There were great moments and particularly memorable were Pete & Mike’s Lake Michigan reception and this moment below with Bob & Louis right after their ceremony.
This weekend I photographed the Chicago Marathon for the AIDS Foundation of Chicago’s Team to End AIDS (T2). It was a fun experience finding just over 130 runners in a sea of 45,000. At first I thought it was going to be a difficult task, but thanks to the unique design of their jersey, it wasn’t that hard after all.
The blazing sunlight shining through the stained glass windows of the church as well as the late afternoon sun skimming off of the gentle swells of Lake Michigan helped to make for a beautiful set of images showcasing their momentous day.
For the second year in a row, Comcast hired me to create portraits for their national United Way campaign. This year’s poster features WMAQ Traffic Reporter Kye Martin.
If you haven’t already seen them, this video and print fundraising ad campaign is now appearing online, in print and on buses all over Chicago. Shooting an integrated marketing campaign with both videos and stills for the AIDS Foundation of Chicago gave me a great opportunity to create effective visuals that I hope will allow this charity organization to exceed their fundraising goals! It was also been another opportunity for me to work with talented graphic designer Dan Paterno.
