This featured architectural photography project was at GT Prime Chicago. Chicago’s newest, edgy-chic restaurant steakhouse. GT Prime is a modern interpretation of the classic Chicago steakhouse restaurant and is located at 707 N Wells Street in Chicago’s bustling River North neighborhood.
Our architectural photography client was appointed as a lighting specialist during construction of the new River North restaurant. Marketing hired Miller + Miller Architectural Photography to photograph the GT Prime building exterior facade. Our photography focus was to capture the exterior photos of the building with a focus on the lighting and ambiance it provides. Additionally, for this exterior Chicago photography building project, the photography shoot was to include photographs of the restaurant building’s front door, and photographed across the street with a focus in on the facade captured during the late afternoon into the evening lighting hours. We planned for our photography shoot of the restaurant building to begin in the early evening, to capture both sunset dusk and night after dark photos.
Photographing the Chicago restaurant storefront building at night not only produces dramatic images but also fulfilled the client’s need to focus in on their lighting product. The GT Prime restaurant photo shoot was photographed during different times of the day, providing professional marketing images for our client who was looking to showcase their lighting product from the evening’s golden hour until after dark. Most important for this photography client, was ensuring our photos visually showcased through photographs the lighting casting beams of light along the valance of the exterior elevation of the building. Using our 10+ years of commercial photographer expertise, knowledge and photographic technical ability, our professional architectural photos of the building illustrate how the light grazes onto the wood paneled walls of GT Prime adding drama to the Chicago storefront of the restaurant’s front doors & entryway. Appointing eye-catching lighting was a genius part of the restaurant’s construction. The unique way the dramatic lighting at the GT Prime Chicago restaurant was added into the building’s construction provide drama, while impressing the eye of potential future patrons driving, or walking out front of the restaurant location on Wells between Huron and Superior streets.
