About This Blog

Hello, Chicago!

My name is Alex Goykhman and I am a professional fashion photographer based in Chicago. I work primarily in my downtown Chicago studio and on location throughout the city. You can see my website an some of my favorite photos at http://www.goykphoto.com.

I have been taking photos for over 10 years, and shooting for ChicagoNow is giving me the opportunity to focus in on my preferred subject: the city of Chicago and what I love about it. As an active Chicagoan who participates in everything the city has to offer - from the fabulous eateries and nightlife, to the variety of shows and exhibits, to my daily stroll through the architectural wonder that is my neighborhood - I intend to use this blog as a reason to take my camera out of the studio and into every aspect of my life. 

I hope you enjoy how I put Chicago in focus.
