This was a fun challenge at the Chicago Field Museum! The client wanted us to photograph corporate guests against the Chicago skyline on the north steps of the Field Museum for some memorable open air photo booth pictures. We had to carefully balance the lighting with the setting sun to make sure the pictures looked awesome and had that Fotio charm we all love. The Field Museum is a beautiful venue and is perfect for those out of town guests in Chicago for a trade-show, conference, or other large gathering! View all the pictures from the event here.
We had the pleasure of working with event planners from agencyEA last night for a corporate holiday party at the Chicago Field Museum of Natural History. The event started in the museum's East Atrium with cocktails, live jazz music by Clarence Boykins, and Fotio fun! Guests posed with Fotio using a large black and white photograph of the museum from it's opening day in 1893. The party had a "White City" theme to go along with the current "Wonders of the 1983 World's Fair" exhibit at the museum. We brought along an eclectic assortment of props (such as a fake owl!) to cater to the old-timey theme and cool taxidermy at the museum. After cocktail hour guests moved upstairs to the epic Stanley Field Hall where Carl Akeley's Fighting African Elephants reside along with famous Tyrannosaurus Rex fossil SUE. Since the event had over 550 attendees we had two Fotio photo booths running concurrently. Our cameras felt majestic in the space and even looked period correct with the classic white marble interiors and vaulted ceilings!
