Chicago Fall in Full Swing

Chicagoans have been incredibly lucky this year. Temperatures in September and October have held steady near the 60 degree mark daily, giving everyone the opportunity to witness the most colorful (and arguably most beautiful) season of the year- fall. Below are photos from a shoot with a friend of mine, Maggie Lubczynski, as well as street shots from Lincoln Park and the Chicago Botanic Garden.

Symmetry Live: The Naked and Famous @ The W-Lakeshore (Photos)

Attendees of the W Hotel’s Symmetry Live event in Chicago Tuesday night were graced with the relaxed rhythms of The Naked and Famous, the impeccable style of well-dressed Chicagoans and a beautiful night fit for an outdoor party compliments of Mother Nature.

Fluorescent lights lit up the Symmetry Live stage and the Navy Pier Ferris Wheel sparkled in the distance as guests mingled with one another sipping complementary cocktails. Most Chicagoans in attendance were decked out in sharp style- men in classic, pinstripe suits and women in trendy fur vests.

HAFH: Cool Kids x Lupe Fiasco at Assembly Hall (Pictures/Video)

The last Lupe Fiasco show I went to at the House of Blues started five and half hours later than it was supposed to, ended 20 minutes after it began, and left me pissed off for the next 48+ hours. My last Cool Kids show, on the other hand, was probably the best time I had at Lollapalooza- Chuck and Mikey performed on Perry’s stage for over 10,000 fans. On Sunday night, I went to the Cool Kids and Lupe Fiasco show at Assembly Hall. I wanted to see if Lupe could redeem himself after the “Fiasco-gate” at the House of Blues, and if the Cool Kids could bring the same energy and positive vibes they are known for to a smaller venue with a lot less people who knew their songs.

Check out after the jump to see reviews, photos, and a video of a live performance!

Pygmalion 2011 Photo Roundup

Shout out to Danger Village for hooking it up with a press pass for the Pygmalion 2011 Music Festival. It was the first festival I ever shot, and the rush of photographers pushing each other around to get the best angle in a cramped 2 foot wide pit area was fantastic. No that is not sarcasm. It was actually really fun. Check out some of my photos below, and the rest, here on the ACITM flickr account. That’s right here on the flickr. Right here. So feel free to click here and go to the flickr. Here.
