Jury Photos

This is art show application season--the rush of the holiday season is quickly followed by the rush of due dates for most of the major shows. While I'm grateful that the digital format is taking over from slides, I'm not as keen on the online application format. These systems are all about the photos, with little or no room for information about the artist or previous awards/recognition.

My jury photos are 4-5 years old and my work has changed so much in the past few years, so I am in desparate need of new ones. I have used Guy Nichols in the past and really like his work-thanks to his shots, two of my pieces were featured in the Crafts Report. But I know that there are others out there who specialize in jury shots with models. And now that I'm doing larger pieces like shawls and capes, I think I may need to pony up for more jury shots with a model.

Anyone out there have any recommendations for photographers in the Chicago area specializing in wearable art?
