It’s nice to meet you! My name is Bret.
I am a professional photographer based here in sunny Chicago. Okay, maybe not always sunny…
I specialize in aerial media and would love to work with you on your next project. I am a FAA licensed Part 107 pilot & fully insured for every project.
Bert? What’s with the name?
It actually started in college as a joke; the name stuck and I decided to roll with it. It’s catchy.
I hear you’re a pretty big Cubs’ fan. What’s the deal?
I am! I grew up in New York but was always a loyal Cubs fan. My dad and I would go to Cubs/Mets games every year. They always lost, but it was special. When I moved to Chicago, I wanted to capture all of Wrigley’s beauty. When WGN asked me to share my work as part of their Opening Day segment, I couldn’t say no!
You get one place to photograph for the rest of your life - where do you choose?
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, and specifically above Wrigley Field. I've been in love with the Cubs and 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 with a long time friend. 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
