Thanks-Actually my work has and did appeared in Rolling Stone and most other now defunct Rock and Roll Magazines back in the day.I prefer to stay in Chicago for both personal and professional reasons.Twenty five years ago people told me I could never survive as a Chicago based celebrity publicity photog without relocating to the coasts.I always believed if you build it they will come.And they did.This is why working for Hollywoodchicago is such a great match.

  • Book of Merman, The

    CHICAGO – One potential theater-goer loves the “The Book of Mormon.” The other would rather stay home and watch old Ethel Merman YouTube videos.
