No, its not the new Canon 5D Mark II and a new lens (but that would be quite lovely!)
Welcome to the world Evelyn Aileen! Congratulations to my rep, Lisa Button and her fabulous husband, Tom, on the birth of their beautiful baby girl!
Real photos to follow!
I recently captured some fresh faces for the über-cool new talent agency Planet Earth Agency and their fearless leader Julie T. If you're looking for the ordinary or the extraordinary, they've got the talent you're looking for. Here's a small lineup of some of the wonderful characters who were just added to the roster of unique and real people in Chicago.
...and the next decade promises to be fantastic! I spent last week on the west coast working as well as celebrating the last days of my 20s with some amazing friends. Here are a few personal pics from my week.
This was the Georgia O'keeffe-esque sky in Chicago on my way to the airport.

This image is the last daylight moments of my 20s. It was an amazing sunset and reinforces my appreciation for where I've been and where I'm headed. I love creating images and am so lucky to be doing what I'm doing. Happy Birthday to me - dammit!
And I still haven't done the following:
- served time in prison
- voted republican
- learned Swedish
- stare at a magic eye poster, and "see" the image
- knitted a scarf
- been captain of a hockey team
- learned to fly
This Friday is my official birthday and we're going to celebrate it around 7PM at the rooftop bar of The Standard hotel in downtown LA. If you're in the area, please come by and help me toast another year on this rotating hairball of a planet!
Its always great to see my work recognized on any level. The International Photography Awards saluted some of my photos with honorable mentions this year. The 2008 Snowbird series was recognized in addition to a portrait of Hannibal Burress for Chicago Magazine and a happy little RV also shot in Florida during the Snowbirds tour in 2008. Thanks!!!
Took a small road trip down south to shoot another assignment for Bicycle Magazine. Jerry Lisenby is definitely no loser but was one of the Biggest Losers on NBC.
And as with most assignments, I took advantage of our location to do a little testing for the portfolio. Stay tuned for the attack of the 15 foot piñata!
