Batman Vs. Superman shoot & published work for 3/21-25

Another busy week at RedEye in Chicago. I shot 4 covers this week & a spread on c2e2. Today there was a great spread of Superman Vs. Batman content for which I shot a cover with Superman & Batman action figures having it out. Designer Sara Amato did a great job designing the cover and lending art direction on this one. To accomplish the image I held a smoke machine and threw foam pieces and sand while Sara hit the shutter for me. The strings holding up superman were photoshopped out while his laser eyes were photoshopped in. If my smoke machine hadn't set off the Tribune Tower's smoke detector I would have done the laser eyes in camera as well... cant win em all. 


24 Hours of assignments for RedEye

I thought it would be fun to share a photo from each of my 5 assignments for RedEye on March 15, 2016. In descending order (without giving too much away ) is from a night life project I'm working on with Heather Schroering, the second is for a story on a new watch company, the third is a charcuterie plate, the fourth is for a story on expanding the 606 to the east, & the last is for a story on the ever growing popularity and acceptance of tattoos. 

RedEye Covers from 2015

My fifth year at Chicago's RedEye was a creatively productive but tumultuous one. I wanted to share a gallery of a few of my favorite print covers and spreads I was a part of over 2015 as a photographer or illustrator.

I'm really proud of all the great reporters and designers I work with over at RedEyeChicago.com . We are a really small, but tight knit team. They've given a lot of trust and I'm thankful for that.

Looking forward to what 2016 will bring. 

Happy Holidays folks!
