Last Fling Advertisements

I am a member of the Naperville Jaycees, and each year our group puts on one of the best festivals in the Chicagoland area.  The Last Fling happens over Labor Day weekend.  It’s a four day party with bands, music, activities, and great food.  This will also be the third straight year that my photography has been used in all the advertising. 

The Jaycees are a really great group of people. Each person uses their own unique skills to help out however they can.  I’m just glad that my skills are what makes us look so good :)  In addition to taking photos, I will be in charge of one of the events at the Last Fling this year.  I’ll post more about it soon… but it’s easily the coolest thing that will happen that weekend. 

The Works!

I have been working on new promotional materials to send out to potential clients.  One of them is a magazine called The Works that I will hopefully be producing three or four times a year.  It will showcase different things I’ve been working on, and in each issue I will highlight a project or company that I’ve been involved with.  Included in this first one are three pages of images that I have taken over the years for Morton Arboretum.  You can browse through a smaller web version of the magazine here:

The Works – Issue #1

And there is even the opportunity to order one if you are interested.  I’m impressed with the quality, and I’m happy with how they came out. Now I guess I have to start working on the next one :)

Fathers Day Ads

Let’s hear it for the Dads!  Katie Wood from the Downtown Naperville Alliance got in touch with me to see if we could create an ad campaign similar to what we did for Mothers Day.  Luckily I knew the dad and daughter we would be using as our subjects- it was my friend Russ and his adorable daughter Reegan.

We picked out 3 good locations in downtown Naperville and tried to work as quickly as we could, knowing that most 2 year olds don’t like to pose for pictures for more than a few minutes.  But Reegan was a trooper and I captured some great moments at each of our selected spots.  

The photos will be used in fliers, posters, and advertisements.  If you live around here it will hard to avoid them :) 

Casa By Charleston

I photographed the grand opening of Casa By Charleston’s new store in downtown Naperville.  It is a great place to look around and get some ideas for what your house ~should~ look like :) 

They are using some of my images in their advertisements.  The one you see here is in Naperville Magazine.  Check out their new place when you get the chance.
