We had the pleasure of working with Marcus Hotels and Marriott while shooting the new AC Hotel in Chicago. Being a former resident of Chicago I love any opportunity to get back there and see my old stomping grounds and hang out with friends and family. This is our second AC Hotel by Marriott that we've photographed and we can't wait to do more!

Here are some shots from a shoot we just finished in Galveston Texas at one of our favorite resorts, Moody Gardens. It was great to get out of the cold and down to the gulf coast. Moody Gardens is a unique resort with its own aquarium and rainforest held inside of huge pyramids. If you're ever down near Galveston check it out.
We've been in Washington DC several times this year for shoots. We kept noticing that the Washington Monument is being repaired and is covered with scaffold. Strangely, it actually looks even cooler this way, especially when lit up at night. So on our last trip to DC we decided we had to photograph it, knowing that it may never look like this again. While we were at it we decided to photograph some other well known monuments (the Capitol Building, the Jefferson Memorial, and the Lincoln Memorial). We shot all of them at twilight. To make the Lincoln Memorial a little different we shot it from the back side. There was a delivery van parked in front which at first we were disappointed about, but in the end we think it makes the shot unique and adds a little bit of fun to it. We hope you all enjoy the series.
Chicago has some of the country's most stunning architecture. If you are ever visiting the city and have a passion or even a passing interest in architecture, I recommend taking one of the city's architectural boat tours. The tour travels along the Chicago River and allows for a unique view of the city and its buildings. Here is a sampling from a recent trip.
