Working as a photographer in Chicago is great and I really love what I do, be it news, sports, wedding photography or event photography. While photographing the AlphaMetrix charity golf outing last year, I took one of my favorite photos. Chicago sports legends Ernie Banks and Stan Mikita, two of my boyhood heros, were taking practice swings on the 9th hole at the Beverly Country Club in Chicago. Actually, the Hockey Hall of Famer Mikita, was giving Baseball Hall of Famer Banks a few pointers. The Alphametrix 2010 golf outing takes place June 21st, once again at the Beverly Country Club. Along with Banks and Mikita, I get to spend the day shooting many of Chicago’s past and present sports greats and working with all of them is a joy. AlphaMetrix, a Chicago based “next generation” investment company, gave proceeds from last year’s event to the Children’s Memorial Hospital Chicago. They do a great job every year and I look forward to shooting this year’s event.
