September 2012

I was contacted over the summer by 4240 Architecture to photograph a building that they had renovated for the GSA.  The site on south State Street in Chicago is home to a few great old buildings in need of refreshing.  The aim of the project was to create a sustainable work place that would be great for the environment while adding value to the area and the GSA’s properties.

  

  

  

  

I had a lot of fun composing around their design.  Everyone on the team was great to work with… as a new client, I’d say they’re definitely a keeper!

This is a little clip I put together one day when I was bored at the office.  RED Epic shooting at 96 fps on the Kessler CineSlider with motion control via their Oracle module.  Set to Neil’s “Helpless.”

We recently spent a couple days on a Herman Miller shoot here in Chicago.  A rented  loft space was the backdrop for creating vignettes of a small business, to show off some of HM’s awesome pieces.  The trick was to make the space feel super bright and airy.  While there was great natural light coming through the windows, it didn’t often carry far into the sets.  We augmented with 12×12 silks, softboxes, kinos, strobes and HMI, including our new favorite, the Jo-Leko.

A few years ago I got to shoot this awesome project, The University of Chicago Law School Library, for Cannon Design.  The architects created new spaces and refreshed the interiors of a building designed by Eero Saarinen in the 1950’s.

Last month we got to return to the site and use it as the backdrop of a new shoot for Cumberland Furniture.  The timeless and elegant pieces from Cumberland made a lovely juxtaposition with the architecture and we had a great time as always with  Rob, Travis and our art director Michael.

Scrolling down this page it seems all about making movies.  Don’t fret, I certainly am still quite busy photographing architecture.  After all, making movies is expensive!  Here’s a lovely little project we did with Gensler.  And by “little” I mean “not little at all.”

We’ve just caught up on the six or so shoots that were backed up in post production and I have a ton of stuff to post.  More to come ;)
