The NFL draft was held in Chicago for the first time this year and I am so proud that my images were a part of it.
I made the trip out to Chicago in the dead of winter to shoot grand cityscapes. I bought every hand and foot warmer I could find and the art directors and I used them all. We shot for 3 days at dawn and dusk in the brutal cold, but it was totally worth it. The images came out great and they were everywhere in Chicago for weeks, especially in Draft Town, the area open to the public for watching the festivities. Here are some the final images as well as some of the images in action, including on the big stage and in ads. A huge shout out to Chad Griffith for his fantastic shots of the player in the last image.
Chi-town is Draft Town!
