We are very fortunate to have such an active and involved Chamber of Commerce in Naperville. We’ve made many long-lasting business contacts through our Chamber connections. Not to mention, we actually met through the Chamber over a decade ago! Every year since 2003 Jeffrey has done the cover image and much of the interior photography for the Chamber’s annual Membership Directory.

This year’s cover is a lovely image of Che Figata restaurant in the Calamos/Hotel Arista complex. To get this image we had to wait for a perfect sunset that would have the light streaking across the front of the building. We also had the camera about 20 feet in the air to provide an interesting perspective as people walked in.

Here is an outtake to show you what the scene looks like without the text. There was almost no post-production work done on these images. The light was perfect and everything looked great right from the start.

Thanks to the Che Figata management team for helping to put this together. And thanks also to our Naperville Chamber for being such a great business resource! We already have an interesting great idea for next year’s cover.
