Chicago Digital Art and Paintings

I’m now offering digital fine art paintings of some of my Chicago photography.

These offer a slightly unique twist of popular Chicago attractions such as the Chicago skyline, Buckingham Fountain, Chicago Theatre, and Wrigley Field.

Prints and canvas wraps are available in a wide variety of sizes by ordering online through the website.

Here’s an example. I’ve added several more to a gallery named Fine Art Digital Paintings.

New Chicago Prints and Stock Photos

I’ve created a new series of toned Chicago photos that are available for sale to buy as prints at my Photoshelter website and license as stock photos at Istockphoto. The toning includes variations in blue, cream, aqua, black and white, and HDR. I’ve been working at including more detail on my Chicago photos such as building names, building addresses, bridge names, and streets. This new series was mainly created from shoots I did in late 2011 and early 2012. Here are some examples:

Chicago Panorama Photo

A new Chicago panorama stock photo is available for Royalty Free (RF) licensing at iStockphoto. This panoramic is very high resolution at 21,000 x 3,500 Megapixels and has a panorama ratio of 6:1. The pictures were taken in late 2010 and include famous Chicago buildings and skyscrapers such as Sears Tower / Willis Tower, Trump Tower, and the John Hancock Building.

New Chicago Editorial Stock Photos at Istockphoto

Istockphoto recently launched editorial images along with an article covering acceptable usage.

I finally got around to adding some Chicago editorial stock photos. This is a pretty nice addition because I have a lot of photos that just aren’t suitable as commercial stock photos but would be great as editorial.

When you do a search the results will show the editorial photos with red text as shown here. Oddly, the search doesn’t allow you to pick only editorial images but you can exclude them. They’re apparently not a collection like Vetta or Agency.

Here are a couple of my recently accepted editorial photos. The Chicago Theater sign is trademarked so it can’t be used for commercial purposes but would be great for editorial. Many of these images are also available on Photoshelter as prints.
