Chicago Tribune Licenses Chicago River Photo

Client Spotlight – Chicago Tribune

One of my Chicago River photos was licensed by the Chicago Tribune for the Chicago Law 2015 section of their website. The Chicago Tribune is one of Chicago’s oldest and most popular newspaper and media companies. The Chicago Tribune was founded in 1847 and printed its first edition on June 10, 1847. The Chicago Tribune is owned by the Tribune Publishing Company which also owns the Los Angeles Times, The Orlando Sentinel, and other popular media companies.

Chicago Prints Licensed for Jewel-Osco Store

Jewel-Osco is now a client! Jewel licensed several of my images to decorate one of their Chicago grocery stores. Ten very large 5×7 foot prints now hang throughout the store located at 1224 S. Wabash in Chicago’s South Loop near Soldier Field. Jewel-Osco retained a commercial design firm to create the design, prints and framing. I worked with the design firm to source images from my Chicago black and white photo collection at http://goo.gl/DaEZ2G.

Prints Now Available Through FineArtAmerica

A large percentage of my work is now available through my FineArtAmerica website at http://paul-velgos.artistwebsites.com/

FineArtAmerica is one of the largest and most popular art print websites in the world. They offer an extensive selection of print options including some of the largest print sizes available such as 48″ x 72″. They offer metal prints, acrylic prints, canvas prints, framed prints, and standard prints.

While a lot of my prints are used as wall art in homes, a growing number of larger canvas prints are being used commercially for business offices in the Chicago area and also nationally. My popular Chicago photography is available through their Chicago Art category and looks great on a home or office wall.

If you need any kind of prints I would highly recommend giving FineArtAmerica a try.

New Chicago Black and White Photos Collection

Chicago Icons in Black and White

The photos in the Chicago Black and White collection include some of Chicago’s most popular and iconic attractions. Black and white can totally change the character of a photo. So I’ve transformed photos of the Chicago skyline, skyscrapers, Wrigley Field, Union Station, Chicago Theatre, Buckingham Fountain, The Bean Cloud Gate, Sears Tower / Willis Tower, Field Museum, Picasso Sculpture and more.

The editing in this collection has been applied consistently across all photos in the series. These photos would be useful for a project such as prints for decorating an office.

Currently there are about 50 photos in the collection and I’ll add more soon.
