One Point Perspective

a day in the life of...

30 Aug UI Labs for S.O.M.

Here’s a new project that I was really excited to shoot.  It’s been a while since I’ve worked with Jaime Velez and the rest of the team over at Skidmore, and I was quite pleased to be selected for this assignment.  UI Labs  (as defined on their site) is a research and commercialization collaborative.  What does that mean?  They’re basically a bunch of really smart people making very cool stuff.  Their space is pretty cool too… just look.

30 Apr The Sun Also Sets

We’ve just returned from a whirlwind trip to New York with Cannon Design.  Two 16 hour days of travel + shoot.  I’m still recovering.  We had fun, though and got some great  images of an exceptional space.  Photos to follow.  For now, here’s the sun setting behind Brooklyn.

26 Apr Book Suggestion: Shooting Space

I ordered the book, Shooting Space, from Phaidon a month or so ago.  The images within aren’t what you would find on an architect’s website or in any trade magazine but are tangential explorations of the genre.  This is something I continually find myself straddling in my own work (as shown in my previous posts).

The book includes a number of photographic series by artists such as Hélène Binet, Iwan Baan, Richard Wentworth, Thomas Struth, Annie Leibovitz, and Walter Niedermayr, though my favorite works were by Belgian Filip Dujardin.  The collection also includes thoughtful essays by Elias Redstone, Pedro Gadanho, and Kate Bush.  Not THAT Kate Bush.

Excerpts from Phaidon’s site:

06 Apr Architect Interviews

For a few months now we’ve been working on a series of interviews with Chicago area architects in collaboration with Thesis, Inc.  Having worked with some of these individuals for many years, it was really wonderful to hear their varied insights into their practices.  Have a look at all of the completed interviews in the portfolio section, here.

01 Apr A Half Day of Interiors for TVS Design

We did just a few shots at this little project by TVS Design.  Though they didn’t have a lot of square footage to work with, I thought the geometry of the interiors was really well designed.  This week were in the middle of shooting another (much larger) project with Ingrid Christensen from TVS and we’re getting some great stuff!

22 Mar Harley Ellis Devereaux: ShopperTrak

We shot this project for HED back in 2013 and I just realized  I’ve never shared it here.  I’ve worked with the firm, and in particular with the wife and husband team of Leonora Georgeoglou / Enrique Suarez for many years.  They’re such a great duo and the company has always produced thoughtful and interesting work.

18 Mar Gensler Law Firm

We recently shot this elegant law firm in Chicago for Gensler. It features a two story mosaic mural of the White City Amusement Park.  Aside from being very beautiful, the mural draws attention away from the interior stairway and focuses it on the Miesian simplicity of the space’s architecture.

The design of the office embraces natural light, which made it easy for us to capture an abundance of images over our two-day shoot.
