Inspired by an Eclipse

Finding a location at the Alder planetarium for this portrait of Rubina Isaac for The New York Times was harder than you would think. I needed something that would obviously say planetarium, so I came up with these two images.

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

I was blown away at the opulence of their offices, located just off of Chicago’s Magnificent mile in a 100-plus year old antique filled mansion. I knew right away when I saw the French room that this is where I had to shoot their portrait.
