Earlier this summer I was contacted to photograph 3 Brookstone stores in the Chicago O'hare airport. I have photographed my share of retail spaces over the years but this was a whole different animal being in the busiest airport in the world! I have to admit it was a little intimidating at first. Will the TSA think all my gear is fishy, will all the people walking by just stare into the camera ruining my shot, will they trip over my lighting equipment?
I am happy to report my equipment passed through TSA with flying colors and the people were too busy trying to connect than to worry about some random photographer taking pictures. I after about 15 minutes I was at ease and actually enjoyed the amount of people I had to choose from to include in the shots.
These 3 images are of the Brookstone popup store in terminal 1.
