Chicago El Stairs


el stairs canvas

A few years back I shot this photograph on a cold January day of the Chicago el stairs. I don’t take a lot of Chicago pictures but this one is one of my best sellers at all of my Chicago art shows. I lived by the lake for 8 years and until recently didn’t take the el to get around the city. The el is located a little west from the lake and wasn’t convenient. Now I live between two stops on the brown line and I am using the el to go everywhere! Tomorrow when I head back to the merchandise mart I will have a quick commute on the brown line. For those of you in the Chicago area that will be attending the OOAK Show stop by booth 2068. The first 5 people to say hello to me will get a holiday gift from RL Photography. Happy Holidays!


All Quiet on the Set


Today I filmed my first video for RL Photography! I had help from a DePaul Student to complete the task. I am always behind the camera but this was a little different standing behind the bright lights in front of the camera. The lighting was a lot of work to get just right but we did it! Stay tuned to see to completed video. For now here is a picture of the set.

Hollywood Glam in Chicago


I have lived in Chicago for 8 years and have never really stepped foot inside the famous Drake Hotel. I did a walking tour with a friend this weekend that just moved to the city so I put it on the list. I wish I would have stopped in sooner. For some people it may not be the sleek modern look of new hotels but for me its just my style. I loved the Hollywood Glam Chandeliers hanging from the ceiling and the bar right off the main lobby looked just as beautiful!

Best Seat in The House


Do you ever go to a movie or play and you find yourself moving around because the person in front of you is taller?! I call this photograph “the best seat in the house” There is no one to block your view just you and the show. I am sitting somewhere famous in Chicago. The first person to guess will get an 8×10 print of this photograph

Morning Fall Walk in Chicago


I planned to meet a friend early to photograph the city Saturday morning. It was raining all day but we made the best of it. Here are a few photographs from our walk from Lincoln Park down to Dearborn Street in the Gold Coast.

Fall Golden Hour in Chicago


Its been a busy couple of weeks here in Chicago. The holiday season is just starting and  I am moving next month. Is there ever a good time to move?! More details on the move and a project I am working on in the next couple of weeks. Its all very exciting!
I was able to squeeze in a walk on the lakefront this afternoon. The hour right before sunset is the golden hour and with the leaves turning it was a beautiful walk. Here is a sample from today!
