There is a need in the industry for more authentic images of Chicago neighborhoods. The over-saturation of downtown and loop images representing the city is obvious. The fact is,  most stock images of Chicago sold today are produced by visiting photographers – both professional and amateur.

This allows us to focus on creating a platform that elevates Chicago photographers, as well as create tools for consumers to find the right images, faster.
