Me

It’s nice to meet you.

My name is Bret.

I am a professional photographer based here in sunny Chicago, Illinois. Okay, not always sunny. But I love this city! Those summers, right?

If you’ve seen my work, you know I especially love to capture an aerial perspective. I have my FAA Part 107 license and am fully insured.

Get to Know Me:

How long have you been taking photos?

I've been taking photos for as long as I can remember, but I decided to take it more seriously in 2017. Since then, my abilities have grown tenfold.

Bert? What’s with the name?

A few friends in college started calling me Bert as a joke; the name stuck and I decided to roll with it. It’s catchy.

You get one place to photograph for the rest of your life - choose wisely:

You’d never run out of places to photograph in New York City, but, for those who know me, my heart has always been in Chicago. I've been in love with the city since I first visited in the early 2000's.

Do you have a favorite travel experience?

In September 2018, I cycled 500 miles through 5 European countries. Once the cycling part was over, we toured around Europe for another two weeks. During our journey, we stumbled upon Lake Bled, Slovenia - perhaps the most picturesque island you’ve ever seen
