Tent Party Xmas – Tree Lighting by Michael Durr

If you weren't there for this year's Tent Party Xmas tree lighting. Let me explain. The Christmas tree depicted in the subsequent video and photos was my parents actual Christmas tree in 2015. It had waited six long months to shine again. And shine again it did. Watch the video all the way through. It's worth every second. No children were harmed in the shooting of this video.

Joe and Deanne by Michael Durr

I had the opportunity to shoot a beautiful wedding at Old Orchard Country Club in Mount Prospect. Joe and Deanne were married on the 10th tee of the golf course and the weather was perfect! Gotta love the live band at the reception as well.

Mike Golden & Friends by Michael Durr

I had the opportunity to shoot at the House of Blues on Friday, July 25, 2014. There were some great bands, including The Ivorys and Mike Golden & Friends. Buy Prints

Jupiter Ascending by Michael Durr

It was a busy Saturday night in Chicago. Setup for this scene of Jupiter Ascending began around 7:30am and did not wrap until about 9:30pm. The scene shows a few cars and a garbage truck meeting in the middle of the Lake Street bridge. The pyro effects actually shot up through the L tracks above the street. From what we could see there were several cameras pointed at the scene as it unfolded, but it seemed that the main camera shot was from the blue lift on the barge in the middle of the river. We watched them rehearse the scene several times before the pyro was installed. Once the pyro was installed it was one and done. Rumor has it that Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum were on the barge, but we never saw them with our cameras. We're looking forward to trying to capture more behind the scenes photos and video. NOTE: This video was the product a few hours of anticipation. Hence the excitement!
