Equipped with a drone, camera, and an unwavering passion for architectural beauty, I ventured forth to document these awe-inspiring structures for East Lake Management, uncovering the breathtaking urban tapestry of the Windy City. My mission was clear but ambitious: produce a captivating video that showcased all 17 architectural marvels and photograph each one, emphasizing their unique characteristics within Chicago’s urban landscape.
Now, my friends, let’s talk about the challenges – and there were many. The sun, that sneaky star, decided to be a diva, casting a blinding backlight onto my camera sensor. I mean, seriously, Mr. Sun, not cool! But, never fear, I called in the app cavalry, and together we outwitted that bright prankster. My goal wasn’t just to snap pretty pictures; I aimed to give you a backstage pass to Chicago’s architectural glitz. I wanted to show you how they rub shoulders with major train lines, stores, and the vivacious heartbeat of the city itself.
In addition to the architectural marvels, I had the privilege of undertaking corporate shoots for East Lake’s new website, aiming to communicate their identity through imagery and storytelling, a dimension that further enriched this narrative.
What was done:
– one short video for the website
– 17 short videos of each building
– pictures of each building
