Hi there, I’m Nick Crawford — a freelance photographer based out of Chicago, IL — and I’m excited to share with you some of my favorite scenes in and around this amazing city. Originally from Southern California, I’ve been living here for just over six years, and Chicago was my original inspiration to pick up a camera. No matter the season, Chicago is absolutely one of the most picturesque cities in the world. With an ever-growing skyline, the iconic ‘L’ transit system, and its vibrant day-to-day city life, there is certainly no shortage of interesting subjects to photograph. I hope these images inspire you to visit the Windy City. Enjoy!




From Lake Michigan to Cloud Gate, it was a joy experiencing Chicago through Nick’s photography. If you’re interested in seeing more of Nick’s work, head over to his Instagram, @nickcrwford.
