Chicago photographers Miller + Miller Architectural Photography recently photographed skyline drone aerial, exterior building, and interior photography at Spoke Apartments in Chicago. Spoke Apartments is Chicago’s brand new, two-tower community in the River West neighborhood offering retail, commercial space, and residential apartments, townhomes rentals. One of our objectives for the shoot was a focus of photos for the communities residential marketing and photographs within the mix of unique on-site building amenities for residents. The apartment community’s marketing “728 reasons to live here. You could leave, but you don’t have to. This is the address that has it all.”
The open-concept and ultra-unique floor plans feature stainless steel appliances and dramatic panoramic views of the Chicago skyline. The mixed-use development has a convenient location offering instant access to River West, West Town, Wicker Park, Ukrainian Village, the bus, interstate, and downtown Chicago via the CTA Blue Line subway and Milwaukee Avenue’s “Hipster Highway.”
M+M is a Chicago drone aerial photographer, exterior architecture, and interior room apartment photographer. The exterior and interior photographs for this Chicago apartment photography shoot included a specific request for the photos to be atmospheric and the shoot to include lifestyle architectural exterior and interior photos with people. The images not only captured the architectural surrounding for exteriors and interior room photographs, but also incorporated people and residents in motion, adding a trendy lifestyle element into the photos to be used for the leasing marketing for the Chicago apartment building’s busy location and the multi-family property amenity spaces.
One impressive highlight for this newly development apartment building is it’s abundance of on-site amenities for renters. The client desired us to choose the most impactful and photographic spaces whereas we selected the lobby and a few vibrant common area spaces for the photography to occur. A few of the numerous amenity spaces and rooms at Spoke include a Virtual cycling studio, yoga, gaming room, luxury sky lounge penthouse, party rooms, spinning studio, 24-hour fitness center, an acre plus of outdoor space, the South Tower’s indoor/outdoor fireplace, outdoor terraces, rooftop pool, private cabanas, bbq, outdoor kitchens, firepits, dog run & spa, parking garage, stage, music room, game room, and recording studio.
Inside the apartment property are unique interior décor designs, architectural design elements, and art filling the interior of the commercial residential building. Curated by Patti Gilford Fine Arts, 24 innovative Chicago-based artists were carefully selected to complement the architecture and culture of Spoke. Akin to living in a contemporary art gallery, the lobbies, amenity spaces, and residential corridors of each building display vibrant, diverse, and thought-provoking paintings, drawings, photography and more providing an unrivaled cultural experience of living alongside contemporary art. We enjoyed the mixing all of the vibrant elements together combining the unique amenity room’s luxury and artsy design details with people walking within the artistic architectural interior photography images.
The Spoke development is the result of a collaboration between Morgan Holdings and the Bond Companies. Ronnie Morgan and Rob & Larry Bond joined forces to create the best residential rental community in this prime location in Chicago, Illinois.

Chicago South Loop Architecture Condo Photography
If you impress your audience with great imagery, your are making a great first impression. Great first impressions draw the consumer in, often leading them to narrowing down their options quicker, and eventually lead to decision making and closed sales. When selling architecture or real estate, the first photo a potential buyer sees of a penthouse condo, luxury home or apartment, should be a strong representation of the community and the home. Less-than-flattering pictures can turn buyers off and lead to lonely open houses.
We enjoy our loyal clients who come back to us for repeat interior and exterior photography projects. One client mentioned after implementing their first home’s photos, a new home buyer and customer mentioned “upon first seeing this amazing photo, I knew I wanted to live in life in that photo and enjoy that lifestyle.” Through the use of photography and building a company’s corporate image or company brand with photographs, developers, builders, marketing experts and more commonly say establishing a brand can create an impact on your audience.
As Chicago architectural photographers, we are capable of not only interior and exterior home photography such as the photographs previewed above, but we offer the option to provide photos beyond the single property or typical home photos. Often we are commissioned to not only capture indoor and outdoor home photos of our client’s personal residence or the agent’s listed home, whether being a residential location such as a rooftop penthouse, loft, condominium, or luxury townhome or photos of a commercial property, photography of a new condo construction project in Chicago, multi unit suburban or downtown development, or investment property, but we are happy to also provide and offer an option to upgrade our services with extra architectural photography items such as aerial photography, environment architecture photographs, lifestyle photography, nearby location landmarks, travel and leisure photography.
For this project, we photographed a two bedroom, two bath luxury condo located in Chicago’s South Loop neighborhood in a high-rise tower within the One Museum Park West Tower IV development. With it’s ideal and prime development location on Lake Michigan, this waterfront location overlooks Chicago’s Grant Park, The Field Museum, Adler Planetarium, Solider Field Stadium, boats, yachts and Chicago Burnham Harbor. We talked about how the One Museum Park West development offers homebuyers not only to buy an amazing property, but they are also buying a lifestyle and the nearby urban community which goes along with living in the South Loop neighborhood. Our client decided to add on a day of Chicago architecture photographs which was beyond the real estate interior and exterior photography. Our architecture focus was to capture lifestyle photos all within viewing distance of the penthouse condo’s balcony. Locations included a few City landmarks viewed from the terrace such as Buckingham Fountain, pictures of the museums, Chicago yacht club, aerial photos of Soldier Field, and a full exterior skyscraper building photographs from Grant Park showcasing the properties proximity to the nearby Loop and business corridor. This South Loop development is ideally located close for commuters into the Loop, with easy travel to downtown commercial and corporate buildings. Within the Park West Tower IV building, we captured photos of the high-rise building’s pool and resident amenities. The extra photographs beyond the real estate and luxury condo photography home tour pictures were a perfect compliment to help illustrate and sell a lifestyle photographically.
So whether your marketing a metropolitan landmark, looking to feature a destination or travel location through photography, or selling a property, while searching online real estate agents, sales and marketing departments, online listing services, and web designers all agree, great imagery provides to the seller or end user a great impression. We look forward to your contact and please send us an email so we can learn more about your travel photography project, your future development either underway in construction or completed, or your luxury home or residence’s marketing photography needs. We travel often, so our capabilities are not limited to the Northern Illinois metropolitan area. We are available to travel to a number of destinations in urban regions, cities and towns around the U.S., and occasionally outside of the Nation for International projects.
