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 city skyline at night along the Chicago River buildings at night with Wabash Avenue Bridge (Irv Kupcinet Bridge) with the London Guarantee Building (360 North Michigan Avenue), Unitrin / Kemper Building (1 East Wacker Drive), Renaissance Hotel (1 West Wacker Drive), Leo Burnett Building (35 West Wacker Drive), 55 West Wacker Drive, United Airlines Building (77 West Wacker Drive), Waterview Tower (111 West Wacker Drive), and Trump International Hotel and Tower (401 North Wabash Avenue).

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.
I’ve had a couple of inquiries about the Chicago panorama image that’s in the header of this site. Currently I only have one panorama of Chicago but I’m preparing to upload a few more to Istockphoto fairly soon. So in the meantime here’s where to find this one.
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.
