A handful of weeks ago, I got to photograph the new addition to Tavern at the Park, the Tavern Tree House. I made some photographs during the day then got asked to come back for more at night to show the the atmosphere. Go check it out sometime, 130 E. Randolph Street, M-Sa 4-midnight.
Tavern at the Park recently opened the Tavern Tree House, a third floor roof top on the Prudential Building. It is such a beautiful outdoor restaurant and bar with an inclosed glass section with a retractable roof for rainy days. I'm doing more photography work for them today, but was excited to show this image in the meantime.
Here is one of the first of the backtrack posts some of you may have already seen on the old blog, but easily could have been missed. I did some self-promo work for myself over at Communal Restaurant in Provo, Utah before moving. Eventually this will get turned into a postcard of sorts to mail out to restaurant groups and individual restaurants in Chicago, but in the meantime, here they are, blog format. Thank you, Communal, for allowing me to come in and hang out with you for a little bit!
Dearest everyone. Sorry I've been MIA for a little while. I'm off to embark on a mini-adventure and in order to prepare for that, I needed to disappear for a few days from the blogging world to get ready for this trip. However, soon I will be back and in action and in a new temporary location. Supposedly I'll be having a lot of free time, which means blogging time. But if any of you actually know me, I am sure I will be filling it up with all sorts of things and manage to be busy while on a vacation of sorts. Really I'm out working, but I'm pretending like I'm on vacation.
Image taken in the Paris Charles-Degual airport just now during my layover.
Image taken at the JW Marriott Hotel in San Antonio while scouting a location for family portraits. Oh, was this location beautiful. I would photograph there again any day. Plenty of good spots, and indoors, so we don't have to worry about the terrible Texas heat or frequent rains. And did I mention it was beautiful?
The Garage on Beck: Salt Lake City. Located in north Salt Lake amongst some refineries with a back patio looking out over an industrial district. Can't really get better than that photographically and atmospherically. Story behind the place is it used to be a small garage where all the factory workers would go after work to get a beer. Eventually it turned into a full bar and they got some food and live DJs and bands to play. If you've never been there, I highly finding your way over. Definitely worth the trip up to Salt Lake from Utah County.
A little while back, I got to photograph for Mattress Warehouse Utah. We did some in studio shots of the owner and his wife (which I'll eventually post) as well as a handful of on location images depicting images for ads as well as the website.
One thing I've come to learn lately is I really enjoy this type of work (says the girl who loves documentary). For sure would not mind doing things like this more in the future.
A while back I got to photograph Richard and DesNeiges's apartment in Provo, Utah. It's an amazing space, located underneath a commercial building on the busiest intersection in Provo. Being located underneath handfuls of shops, there were a lot of challenges in setting up the apartment... such as the lack of windows. However, Richard, being the savvy architect he is, was able to create a welcoming and vibrant space, enhancing the industrial and potentially dismal setting. Great place to photograph, photogenic as can be as well as the added bonus that he got to be there to help guide me on all the main features he wanted showcased. So, after some editing and a bit of time, are the images.
