40-couples, gay, lesbian and straight, unite in Chicago

Yesterday, 40 couples — gay, lesbian and straight — were married in a group wedding ceremony at Unity in Chicago and I was lucky enough to be in attendance. Here’s a selection of photos from yesterday’s event marking the beginnings of gay marriage across Illinois. Congratulations to all the newly weds!

Earlier this month I created this executive portrait for my client Hyatt Hotels Corporation featuring their new Group President – ASPAC.

Sports Lifestyle Advertising Campaign: T2

I’m so glad that I can finally share these images with you now that the ad campaign has been released!

At the end of winter, on a day when the temperature didn’t reach 10 degrees, I needed to create an ad campaign to promote an organization that competes in summertime athletic events to raise money for charity. Even though it was sunny on the day of our shoot, if I dared take the athletes on location, in no time at all it would have resulted in frostbite and frozen pained expressions.

Tying the knot with Sean & Kevin

Using the available light in a space is always my first preference because it leads to pleasing natural looking candid images that document the wedding.

I’m loving the look of this new music video I produced for The Brian-Alwyn & Malynda Hale! Shot as 422HQ C-Log with the Canon C100 w/ Atomos Ninja 2 graded in Resolve. Zeiss ZE 28mm f2 Zeiss ZE 50mm f1.4 Zeiss ZE 85mm f1.4
