Last weekend I worked with my friend Laura of Poly Golightly Vintage to photograph a promotional shoot for the upcoming Chicago Bike Winter Fashion Show that will take place next Friday, March 15th at C Haus.
We were fortunate enough to work with a beautiful and sweet model, Elise, who remained cheerful despite having to pose in chilly weather. Laura styled her in early 1970s clothing and we used the mural outside of Rapid Transit Cycle bicycle shop in Wicker Park and the Damen blue line El platform as backdrops.
If you’re in the Chicago area you should drop by the fashion/gallery show next weekend, I’ll be there photographing the runway.
A few outtakes of our models while we were journeying from the bicycle shot to the El platform. Will is our male model and actually works at Rapid Transit.
Laura took my photo on her phone after we wrapped the shoot– I happened to coordinate pretty well with what the models were wearing– my boots & wool beret are from the 1970s and the coat is from the late 1960s.
