Chicago Architecture & Scenery
Every photographer has a favorite subject. For me, that subject has always been the city. I grew up here, and have been admiring this city's architecture and skylines since I was a kid. I have boxes of old photos shot with Kodak Instamatics, 110 film cameras, and old manual 35mm systems. Chicago is a city that is constantly changing. Buildings go up, their names change, and slowly but surely the city evolves into something new. My goal with these images is to show the very best of Chicago, in what I hope is the most interesting light. A common theme in my city photos is the overall lack of humans. This is by design, and requires some very early morning shooting at times. All images in this gallery are high resolution, and are well suited to large prints! Panoramic (ultra-wide) images cannot currently be printed through this site, but I have another lab set up to provide them for you. Contact me for details!
This is another image I worked on with the help of Nick Burwell. This was taken in July of 2008, using a 50mm lens and 7 vertical images stitched together in Photoshop. Camera work by PJ Matthews, all processing by Nick Burwell. Thanks again Nick! This is another very large file, and is heavily compressed to be shown on your monitor. Click on the photo for the larger sizes! This will easlily print to 36" or more wide, by approx. 8" high!
