Welcome

My photography is focused on capturing beautiful images of the Fox Valley. Whether by drone or on foot, I seek out those times when life imitates art in order to show people, places and things in a way they have never been seen.

 

I’m driven by both a sense of pride in my community as well as a sincere desire to find beauty in every moment. As the survivor of four open heart surgeries, I have a daily reminder that every moment on this earth should be cherished. And as a lifelong resident of the Fox Valley, I'm honored to capture images that provide value to my community.

"After seeing Drew's beautiful work on his Instagram account, we commissioned him to take aerial photos of our office location in Arlington Heights. Preceding the shoot, he communicated with us about his process and asked detailed questions to be sure he understood the full scope of the project. The results were gorgeous - we were thrilled with his photos! Drew is extremely talented and a pleasure to work with. We look forward to working with him again!"
