Chicago Magazine January 2012: Dr. Geroulis

January 17, 2012 in Photography

Chicago Magazine gave us the pleasure of photographing several Dr.s for their January issue.  Although they were all great, we certainly have a soft spot for Dr. Geroulis up in Northfield.  I knew this was going to be a good shoot when I was scheduling via phone with his wife, Mirofora; with her beautiful accent, she could read the phone book and it would sound amazing!:)  When we arrived, we learned Dr. G is also an award winning sculptor (how fantastic is that?!) and the experience got even better when I found out there was a selection of bow ties for us to choose from (swoon!).  Dr. Geroulis and the lovely Mirofora could not have been nicer people, I hope to see them both again soon!

Design Bureau, Issue 8: Event Creative, A Photographer’s Dream

January 4, 2012 in Photography

If you haven’t seen Design Bureau yet, go buy a subscription NOW!!!! Based in Chicago, it is a magazine featuring all kinds of design-and it’s, of course, designed beautifully.  Issue #5 has a fashion section with type treatments so fantastic I want to hang them on my wall! And the PAPER, you really need to feel this paper!:)

Issue #8 was just released, and I’m thrilled to be a contributor!

Thank you Design Bureau for sending me to photograph Kelly Wagner, Phil Cooper, and Melissa Kirby, all talented designers part of the Event Creative team (as of the article release date, Phil however has moved on to another company). Walking into their giant warehouse for the first time, I could feel the energetic buzz of creativity! On staff designers, lighting techs, & carpenters (only a few of the endless crew specialties!) all work harmoniously to produce not just events but experiences. It all happens amongst rows upon rows, and stacks upon stacks, of props, lighting, and raw building materials.  If only I could have the run of this place for a week-the sets we could create!!!!!:)

Special thanks to Mr. Cooper for giving me a shot that will forever make me smile!:) Family portrait below also includes Gigi-Event Creative’s official mascot!
