I love it when an assignment not only gives me an opportunity to do what I love â€“ shoot environmental portraits â€“ but it gives new insights about the city I call home.
When the New York Times magazine asked me to shoot a series of images showcasing Chicago bars and bartenders I was shown five great places to tie one on, all with a unique knot.
During a meeting with Rhett Lindsey, Jessica Syburg (both from the Aids Foundation of Chicago) and graphic designer Dan Paterno, we started brain storming ideas for ads to promote AFC’s fund raising event World of Chocolate. The gold satin caught their attention and we were on our way to look at my living room for ideas.
The weekend was full of excitement as we shot two projects to help two Chicago area AIDS Charities raise money through athletic events.
My sports lifestyle ads for the AIDS Foundation of Chicago, designed by the talented graphic designer Dan Paterno can now be found all over Chicago, including this ‘L’ station!
Ever since May when I shot this campaign for the AIDS Foundation of Chicago, I have been waiting with great anticipation for the day to come when I could share it with you! Good thing for me the sports lifestyle ads, designed by the talented graphic designer Dan Paterno started running this week! Soon you’ll see them on Buses, on the web and in magazines.
