This morning i had my second fill-in as a backup helicopter video photojournalist for nbc. we saw the sun for about 2 minutes and then it turned all dreary so this footage is pretty blah. either way, gotta run with what mother nature gives you, so here's a quick edit of some shots in between heading to traffic hits.

Walking through the lincoln park nature boardwalk on saturday these gentle waves on the lagoon caught my eye. i love how the thin layers stack up and flow together.

A picture of the now empty tribune tower from an empty 7th floor neighbor. 📰
a few weeks ago i had the chance to shoot a time-lapse for a #todayatapple event from this floor. it was completely empty. felt like a scene out of the movie boiler room.

🐻⬇️ had the chance to go on the field before the @chicagobears game with my dad last sunday. what a cool experience for us to help fly the gigantic bear down flag! here are a couple 360 videos and some 600mm zoom shots from our seats!

This coming monday, october 29th, @360chicago is hosting a special edition of #360tripodmondays. jaime black of @dynastypodcasts will record a panel discussion between myself, @nick_ulivieri, @badluckbae and @tobishinobi. we'll talk about our experiences with photography, instagram, and freelancing in chicago. after the talk there will be q+a.
be sure to bring your tripods to shoot the night cityscape from the best observatory in chicago! tickets to the discussion (and a ride on tilt) are $15 and can be purchased at bit.ly/360dpod. hope to see you there!
🚁this footage was shot during my training as a backup helicopter photojournalist.
