Everclean -

Saim from Level Construction asked us to shoot a recently constructed car wash for their online portfolio.  We had done one a few years back that turned out exceptionally well.  

We elected to shoot the building as soon as it closed, so that there wouldn’t be in vehicles in the parking lot or carwash.  This would give the images a cleaner look and highlight the architectural aspects of the project.  


The shoot took us about two hours and went extremely well due to the cooperation of on-site manager Josh Ogiba.  Josh made sure that everything was clean and well lighted for the shoot, even staying after hours so that we could get the shots we needed.


Thanks for the help, Josh!  Below are just a couple of images from the shoot.


Lauren Coburn Interiors -

We had a photo shoot earlier this year with Lauren Coburn.  Lauren and Senior Designer Susie Chavez met us on-site to walk us through the incredible transformation of this project.  This is an early century estate, that is just filled with craftsmanship.  Staying true to the character of the home Lauren, and her team updated the house by removing walls, opening up spaces, modernizing all of the living areas and making the home more beautiful, comfortable and opulent then one could possibly imagine.

When we arrived on the first day of shooting, Lauren and her team were fully prepared, having everything perfectly set and staged for the photo shoot.  As someone who shoots nearly every day, I really appreciate all the hard work and preparation that they put forth to make the shoot run smoothly and allowing us to capture as many images as possible.  Just look at the attention to detail in the images.  This is what true high-end interior design is all about. Artistry in the home.

You've read about Lauren and her team here before, and below is why her firm is considered on of the most exclusive and sought after Interior Design firms in the Chicagoland area.  Enjoy.

Quick Turn Around Shoot: Orren Pickell Builders / Michelle's Interiors

We got a call earlier this year from Patrick Falso to do a super quick photo shoot of a lower level interior with Orren Pickell Builders and Michelle's Interiors.  They needed a shoot done for a magazine article and the turnaround time was almost immediate.  Of course, you only get calls like that when your are already in the midst of a full schedule.

Michelle, Roher-Lauer met us on-site to outline the compositions she wanted and to do some quick staging.

We had only about an hour of iso to shoot but were able to work quickly and get what we needed.  Processing the images began as soon as we were back at the studio that same evening.

We enjoyed working with Patrick and Michelle.  Below are a few highlights.

Shooting Cinespace Studios Chicago

Earlier this year I met up with Dana Tatge of Key Interiors at Cinespace Chicago.  Cinespace is the largest film studio in the Midwest.  It houses an impressive 36 active sound stages and over 1.6 million square feet of production space.  Couple that with the numerous Cinespace studio locations spread across the US, Canada and Europe, and it's obvious why this is the studio of choice for feature film and television.

Key Interiors recently updated some of the office spaces for the key staff members at Cinespace.

Below are a few of our favorites.
