Alan Luntz is an experienced concert and event photographer who has served as a press and artist photographer at Millennium Park, Green Mill, Constellation, the Northwestern University Bienen School of Music, and the Jazz Showcase. During the day, he captures hundreds of smiles as a school portrait photographer and sports yearbook photographer for Visual Image Photography, a full service photography company with a 40 year history in the Chicagoland area. As a Northwestern University student, he has formal training in fine art film photography, developing, and printing. In his free time, Alan enjoys playing the sousaphone, guitar, piano, and meeting adorable dogs to photograph and post on Instagram.
My favorite reaction for any photo I have taken is actually for a school yearbook/ID photo; "Damn, I look FINE!" In photography, my primary objective is to take the photo that creates memories, and makes a client feel amazing about the way they look.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
Timeliness is extremely important in photography, especially in the age of smart phones and social media. For the last student conducting recital I photographed, I was proud to be able to photograph an entire orchestra concert, select photographs, edit , and upload them to the client in time for them to post on social media the same night! This is so important when many other photographers will have week long turn around times for images.
