University College Prep School Exterior and Interior Photography


“Above our a few samples from our two day photography session with this university and college preparatory high school, located in the Northern Illinois and Chicago area.  The day capturing architectural photography included not only campus exterior architectural photography, but also interior room photography of the old and new sections of the school, and time outdoors beyond the education section of the campus where we photographed the school, university and college sport stadium, parks and fields.

After discussing with the school’s marketing department their communication and visual needs, they booked more than one day with us and we captured pictures of the building’s recent additions and renovations to campus academic buildings, classrooms, lecture halls and more providing photos for the school’s public relations, press, development needs.  The campus tour photos were incorporated into the school’s recent web design update and printed brochures.  Today a year later after the shoot, our contact at the school replied saying  ”Thank you Sarah and Ryan. Your photography has helped our school’s marketing pieces and website standout. ”

With several public and private educational institutions in the Chicago suburbs and the metropolitan Chicago area the development department decided to updated the school’s design materials by enhancing the designs with not only a new up to date logo, information and web site, but they also contacted us for commercial photography of the students and interior and exterior building photos helping to enhance the image of the campus inviting future students to visit and enjoy the school.”

Donald Trump’s Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago changed the landscape of Chicago’s skyline.  Currently one of the City’s newest skyscraper condo-hotels, it is located in Chicago’s River North Gallery District.  The landmark rises 92 stories high.  Located just steps from the Magnificent Mile and ideally located the North side of the Chicago River with clear Eastern views of Lake Michigan.  It’s urban location is West of the Wrigley Building and just East of the iconic Marina City. Hat’s off to Bill Rancic of Donald Trump’s hit TV show’s The Apprentice for managing the construction of this iconic Chicago River building. It has to be rewarding for Bill & wife Giuliana DePandi (Former E! entertainment News anchor co-host) to see such an iconic building in the heart of Chicago that he helped develop.

Chicago Spire Restarting Construction?

Chicago SpireChicago Spire SkylineChicago Spire Hole In The GroundChicago Spire FoundationChicago Spire Construction RestartChicago Spire AerialThe restarting of construction for Chicago Spire, the masterpiece of Santiago Calatrava Valls, an internationally recognized and award winning Valencian Spanish architect, sculptor and structural engineer, may actually become reality soon. Chicago Union leaders with the AFL-CIO may be poised to loan the developer (Garrett Kelleher, Shelbourne Development Group, Inc.) some $170 million in pension funds to restart the Chicago Spire skyscraper project.  Because of the recession and slow economy liens and lawsuits against the developer, what would’ve have been the tallest building in North America, the now building stands stalled in construction.  All there is at 400 N. Lake Shore Drive today is a gigantic hole in the ground of a foundation between the Chicago River and the Ogden slip.

The union boss who represents 100,000 local construction workers says that  unemployment among his members is becoming rampant. The Chicago Spire project could create around 7.5 million man hours of work. “We have people losing their benefits, their houses, their families, and this is a project that’s going to be good for five years with employment for my members,” said Tom Villanova of the Building and Construction Trades Council. “It hit some rough times for this economy, but I think as long as it meets the investment criteria of the pension fund, then it’s a go,” Jerry Roper, president and CEO of the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce, said.

This is great news!!!  I was getting depressed seeing that big, black, Lake Shore Drive hole in the ground while watching the celebration of the Burj Dabai on TV!  Despite what Donald Trump and other critics may say, I think think the Spire would be the shining crown jewel of the best modern architectural museum in the world…the Chicago Skyline. This building needs to be built. As much as I love buildings like the Burj Dubai, Taipei 101, Petronas Twin Towers, etc… Chicago can not afford to be second place behind cities like Dubai, Taipei and Shanghai. Like the delay of constructing New York’s Freedom Tower, it’s just not right.
