Minneapoli-based photographer James Blakeway and his staff travel the world over, photographing the most dramatic skylines wherever they go. Very often, they are shot from a helicopter, so the work is challenging. The weather and light have to be just right and they often need the permission of local air traffic authorities to accomplish this. James has assembled a great group of shots of our dramatic Chicago skyline.
