19 Nov Recent Work
My clients have been wonderful in supporting my new venture and I feel quite fortunate to have so many strong relationships. It’s great to be able to work with many diverse and really creative people. Also, I should congratulate the recent award winners! Harley Ellis Devereaux took a Chicago AIA Interior Architecture Award for Abelson Taylor; as did Brininstool Lynch for the Claremont House. The Claremont House was also featured as the cover of Chicago Architect. Skidmore Owings & Merrill won a few ASID Awards this year, including one for the interiors of UBS Chicago and for the chair Jaime Velez designed in Formica cladding (which was really a joy to shoot).
Below are some samples from recent shoots. I’ve been working with Arca Swiss cameras for so long that my new one already feels like an old friend, and it is a perfect marriage to the Phase 1 digital back. I stopped using film about 20 months ago and it took 39 megapixels of data to convince me to give up the ghost. The new medium really is outstanding. Though there have been some technical…..ahem, challenges along the way, the final images are clearly of greater quality. The tonal range, color rendition and sharpness, coupled with the work I’m doing in Photoshop make me feel like I’m producing the best images of my career. This is the level of quality that I have been chasing for the last 15 years.
