Pulse is a new 6,000-square-foot gas station and offers unique, convenience store, food and specialty items to purchase, different than other gas stations in the Elkhart / South Bend Indiana area.  The station has a brick-oven pizzeria readily available for customers to craft order their own pizza’s toppings for a custom made pizza pie, a large self-service candy wall, 15 different flavors of frozen yogurt available, specialty grocery foods, large flavored coffee bar, frozen foods section, a larger variety of the typical station foods, and drinks.  Truly a creative and different style of gas station/convenience store concept that provides for a small dining seating area on-site too. 

The Elkhart / South Bend Indiana Pulse Gas Station Photography shoot incorporated interior photography inside of the Elkhart retail commercial gas station store included photos in the sections graphically called U Craft Woodfired Pizza, U Brew Coffee Bar, U Twirl Frozen Yogurt, Treat U Self to the gourmet candy sweets wall, and the restaurant seating area inside.  Outside, drone and the exterior photography of the gas station property included a couple of angles of the building and photos both with and without the gas station pumps & canopy.  We photographed creative angles and real estate photography capturing the gas station architecture during the daytime, and in dusk night photos.  The developer says plan are in the works to build four or more locations in the coming years.  

Discussing the building’s commercial construction exterior and interior photography project with the client, due to the photography shoot’s property being open to the public, customers would be utilizing the photographed space 24-7.  For the highly public, real estate photographed spaces, our client appreciated we are photographers with an ability to incorporate interior photography of the gas stations and interior retail convenience store with marketing photos to include a lifestyle component to the shots, whereas the customers and people of the public will be blurred and moving throughout the interior retail architectural photography building’s photoshoot. Customers and employees within the photographs add life, movement, and people which help to provide a sense of scale within the composition of each photograph taken.  

A highly-focused and unique gas station incorporating a strategic marketing business concept, the Pulse Gas Station design incorporates a culture based around concepts of delivering “awesome”.   That culture is carried throughout not only graphically and visually within the Elkhart building’s retail store, but in the company’s philosophical branding.  Pulse is selling not only awesome retail products, but also providing a culture of delivering awesome service too!  Environmental graphic design by Treebird Branding.

The interior design of the Pulse retail convenience store is a family-friendly atmosphere.  Our indoor, photo shoot of the store showcased the convenience retail store’s variety of sections and retail departments plus its unique branding.  Offering premium shopping experience and a contemporary environment with creative signage and graphic design visuals throughout the Elkhart South Bend’s interior store floorplan.  Lively, the graphic designer’s designs provide for an atmosphere of inviting yet bold colors throughout the interior of the building’s shopping mart sections.  The gas station concept inside Pulse offers is a casual feel with a small and convenient retail store shopping experience which offers a one stop destination for customer’s to “fill up on awesome”.   Pulse Gas Station, www.filluponawesome.com  501 County Road 6, Elkhart, IN 46514

Nationwide architectural photographers, we shoot a variety of structures and construction.  For this project, Miller+Miller had the opportunity to capture photography of the Chicago Skyway Toll Bridge, canopy, and plaza restoration photographing the toll road’s infrastructure construction completion in photographs.  Not long after the Chicago Skyway Toll Bridge & Plaza restoration’s construction completion, we scheduled photography of the famous iconic, neon sign gateway and high-bridge entrance into the city of Chicago. 

The marketing department from the Skyway inquired to Miller + Miller, looking to hire an architectural photographer to capture structural photography with photos showcasing the site’s update which preserved the original vintage art-deco design of the toll plaza structure and infrastructure photography highlighting the modern day new technological improvements. The architectural photography project incorporated a variety of shots including aerial drone photos, day, dusk images, and night photographs of the historic restoration of the Chicago Skyway plaza, LED toll lane signage, modern signs along the roadway, stainless steel tollbooth, steel canopy, neon letter signage, portraits of employees working in toll lanes, and scenic pictures of the high-bridge from the roadway for the organization’s press releases, marketing, website, and advertising photo needs. 

The project included photographing one of the Chicago area’s major transportation route and travel hubs.  The Skyway serves a link between roadways, tollways and expressways within Illinois, Indiana and Michigan midwestern states while traveling to downtown Chicago from the Southside.   The Chicago Skyway is a 7.8 mile long toll road built by the city of Chicago in 1958 to connect the Dan Ryan Expressway to the Indiana Toll Road.  In 2005, Chicago’s Skyway became the first U.S. privatization of a toll road in the country.  The Chicago Skyway Tollway is currently operated & maintained by the Skyway Concession Company, LLC and was purchased in 2016 by three Canadian Pension Funds – OMERS Infrastructure, CPP Investment Board, and Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan.  

Since 2005, the Skyway Concession Company, LLC has invested over 120 million dollars on transportation industry improvements to the Skyway, including an expansive technology build-out to allow for electronic payment of tolls and ability of E-ZPass / I-PASS payment.  The ability to combine the sixty-year-old architecture of the canopy with the latest tolling technology is “a testament to the progressive and versatile nature of the original toll plaza design,” said Skyway Concession Company CEO in a statement to Curbed Chicago.  The Chicago Skyway canopy restoration project, led by SOM, carefully returns the structure to its original form while modernizing its tolling technology. Old cameras, antennae, and other attachments are replaced by new, streamlined technology for more convenient and efficient toll services, plus LED lighting, and easy-to-read digital signage.  According to SOM, the canopy design incorporates photovoltaic panels to provide 100 percent of the renewable clean energy required to run the toll plaza. As communications and transportation technology evolved, the toll plaza had been continuously retrofitted with new devices and fittings.  This recent modernization no longer was impeding service speed and traffic flow.  

The original 1958 construction design of the Skyway’s toll plaza canopy was described as “ultra-modern”. Architectural photographs of the renovation not only included highlighting infrastructure, but also architectural structural renovation design which kept the familiar toll plaza eye-catching mid-century design elements from the historic, original construction design. Car drivers along the roadway today are still invited with the 1958-styled, historic, classic red sign mounted neon letters which spell out “Chicago Skyway Toll Bridge” atop the historically modernized piece of elegant midcentury infrastructure.

In addition, the architectural photography shoot project included capturing day images and night photos of the 1⁄2-mile-long steel truss bridge, known as the “High Bridge” crosses the Calumet River and Calumet Harbor.  A major harbor for large-sized industrial ships, the Skyway bridge’s construction is an impressive 650 feet long and provides for 125 feet of vertical clearance. The photography shoot focused on angles of not only the Skyway’s soaring very HIGH overhead steel bridge & roadway, but also artistic road, expressway and infrastructure pictures with shots of the bridge incorporating the area views of the Lake Michigan shoreline, the Chicago skyline in the distance, and creative aerial drone photographs of the roadway transportation system.

Learn more about The Chicago Skyway at www.chicagoskyway.org.  The Skyway project’s architectural renovation design was led by Architect SKIDMORE, OWINGS & MERRILL LLP. Project engineer and civil engineering of the famed Chicago Skyway Bridge’s design and construction by contractors Beier Engineering. Miller + Miller Architectural Photography was thankful to photograph the renovation project providing marketing construction images of the updated Chicago Skyway Toll Bridge & Plaza Restoration project.

A video drone shoot for the Crescent Dunes Solar Energy power plant project located outside of Tonapah, Nevada. Aerial photography and video by MILLER+MILLER Chicago Drone Videographer & Photographer company who travels to capture building photography Nationwide and around the globe.

The Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Project is a 110 megawatt solar thermal power project located outside of Tonopah, in the rural deserts of Nevada.  A concentrating solar power (CSP) plant with a central receiver tower and advanced molten salt energy storage technology developed by SolarReserve, Tonopah Solar Energy, LLC. The $1 billion project includes 10,347 heliostats that collect and focus the sun’s thermal energy to heat molten salt flowing through an approximately 640-foot tall solar power tower. The molten salt circulates from the tower to a storage tank, where it is then used to produce steam and generate electricity.  Excess thermal energy is stored in the molten salt and can be used to generate power for up to ten hours, including during the evening hours and when direct sunlight is not available. The storage technology also eliminates the need for any backup fossil fuels, such as natural gas. 

Under a power purchase agreement (PPA) between SolarReserve and Nevada Energy, all power generated by the Crescent Dunes project in the next 25 years will be sold to the Nevada Power Company for $0.135 per kilowatt-hour. In late September, 2011, Tonopah Solar Energy received a $737 million loan guarantee from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).  The capital funds included $170,000,000 in EB-5 investment through SolarReserve / ACS Cobra partner CMB Regional Centers.

Construction at the renewable energy generation station began in 2011 and ended in 2013, followed by several months of testing the plant systems. Melting about 70,000,000 pounds of salt takes took two months. Once melted, the salt stays melted for the life of the plant and gets cycled through the receiver for reheating. The SolarReserve’s Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Facility project entered commissioning phase in February 2014.  The Super Bright Glow of the solar power tower can sometimes be visible at more than a hundred miles away on highway US 95. The plant’s strategic location is in the desolate, geographical and sun-filled desert of central Nevada.
