Street Studio: Chicago

I have a fondness for a particular “out the way place” in River North that’s just about perfect for street portraits.

This one is just one of the hundreds of these optimal locations that makes working in the biggest city of Illinois such a treat.

This session was made easier by my subject’s winning personality. His comfort in front of the camera meant that we were done shooting in no time.

Finishing early allowed us an extra half hour of chatting over coffee at a great place around the corner.

To hear the first-hand stories of a professional actor working in Chicago was as satisfying as making a memorable portrait.
