Inspiration: Nick Gerber

I have been following Nick Gerber's blog for some time now. Quite possibly since he started it. I am in no way trying to be boastful; I am just trying to get my facts straight. He was quickly a favorite. He constantly posts original content and his subject is usually the city that he lives in: Chicago. I don't live too far from Chicago. I have a few friends that live there and am a frequent visitor. It's wonderful to see a place I have grown to love through the eyes of someone else, who also happens to love it. Not only does Nick take wonderful photographs, he also happens to be a very nice fellow. I'm totally serious. I don't judge this from his photographs. I have gotten some advice from him and it has helped immensely. Night shooting in Chicago looks like so much fun (and it is) and Nick politely responded with settings I should use for great shots. I also inquired if I could use his photographs in this post and he said yes. Hooray!

Recently, he set out to photograph veterans along route 66 with his father so they could create a film and fine arts book with the photographs. More information about this project can be found here.
