About

Most wedding photographers can arrange poses and capture them, but few photographers have the ability to capture the relationships, moods, and emotions that are the essence of any wedding day. Gia did all of that and offered us unique coverage. Gia’s work highlights the beauty and elegance of our wedding day in a way that cannot be described, but must be seen, both in the great albums and dvds she had ready for us in no time. Great job, Gia! Keep up the good work!

About

I am a Columbia College Chicago graduate with a major in Film & Video, and a member of Professional Photographers of America (PPA) fascinated about the miracle within the photographic art: the reality, the secret, the hidden behind what we normally see! A film can tell you a story, a musical piece can wake up great memories, a ballet performance brings up elegance and grace but photography talks about who we actually are! Therefore, I begun a quest where I want to catch that single magic moment that capture's the viewer's imagination! I specialize in Weddings, Mitzvahs, Corporate and Family/Kids. I use up to date photo equipment and software to be able to provide the best quality images to my clients. I cover the Chicago area, but I am happy to do destination work as well. The only thing I find more fulfilling than being able to do creative work in photography is being a mom.

About

Hi, my name is Mike, and I have been a photographer for over 30 years 12 of those as a professional. I am available for on-location shoots in the Chicago metro area, including the counties of Cook, Du Page, Will, Kane, and Kendall. I enjoy shooting all types of subjects, including, but are not limited to architecture, bands, belly dancers, bikini models, cars, food, fashion models, lingerie, nature, portraits, weddings, and informal gatherings, and much more. I love being behind the lens and find it to be one of the most interesting and thought-provoking art forms there is. My clients have had nothing, but great things to say about me and my photography. I don't have fancy backdrops and lighting packages; I love to shoot with natural light and available light. I also love to assist up-and-coming models with their portfolios. I have won three awards in 2004, 2005, and 2006 for "Outstanding Achievement in Amateur Photography" from the International Society of Photography. I also had a picture shown on a local TV station and have had several of my pictures published in my local newspaper. I am a highly motivated and hardworking photographer, and I am always learning more of the art from being in the field, the internet, books, magazines, and fellow photographers. I love to make my customers happy. My shoots are always fun and productive. Shooting in digital format gives myself and my client the instant feedback on that shot that makes both of us say "wow". So, if you're looking for a photographer who is friendly, focused, and always open to share your ideas, please contact me for further details.

About

I have been a professional photographer since 1990. I work out of my home studio in the western suburbs and usually meet clients at local coffee houses. I grew up in Westchester, IL and attended Columbia College while working at a graphic design studio in Chicago. In that studio, I worked in the darkroom preparing ads for print. Deciding a change was needed, I headed to Atlanta to attend a two-year program at the Art Institute of Atlanta. I love photography and have loved it since I was a little girl, and to be able to do this for a living is just so cool. I specialize in the following: - Commitment ceremonies - Event photography - Weddings - Bar mitzvahs - Portraits - Corporate But I love all kinds of photography. I've shot bands and some famous people. I do modeling portfolios and love shooting on location. I also do commercial real estate properties, photos on the beach... you name it, I do it. I have been photographing weddings and many other things for 20 years and plan on doing it for many more. I was voted as the "Best of Weddings 2008/2009" by The Knot! Please check some of my work in the gallery.

We do fine art photojournalistic event and wedding photography, editorial photography, and portraiture. Michael Monar began his career from 1999 through 2002 under the tutelage of the world famous David LaChapelle Studio in New York. As studio and photo assistant, he was privy to the workings of the prestigious photography giant, and was learning and aiding in the production of images for major magazines including Vogue and Vanity Fair. He has also assisted in celebrity photoshoots and in the creation of advertising campaigns for major brands including Shiseido and Absolut. In 2002, after he completed his BFA in photography and art history at the Indiana University, he stretched his range by establishing his own gallery the Gallery Mornea in Evanston, IL. Monar designed and directed the construction of the space himself. With his gallery, Monar brought the sophistication of the art community to the North Shore.

About

Are you looking for an affordable photography service in the Chicagoland area? I would love to be of service to you! I am a photographer who is based in Chicago, and I love to capture events, portraits and art in a photojournalistic manner. When I take a picture, I want the photo to portray the feeling of the atmosphere when the picture was taken. This means less posed shots (though I can do those, too) and more real, in-the-action photography! Right now, I'm getting my feet off the ground in Chicago and offering special prices on headshots, engagement sessions, weddings, portraits, and lifestyle photography. Take a look at my website to see the rates at the time, and for students, if you're an entertainer looking for headshots, you'll receive 25% off with a current student ID! Additionally, I pride myself in my fine art photography; I feel that I have a way of capturing and conveying the real grittiness of a place that is unique and innovative. If you're interested in displaying my current collection, based on life in lower-middle-class Panama City, Panama, please feel free to get in touch with me!
