I have worked for the last 15 years as a writer, journalist, & photojournalist, and the last 25 as an event photographer. I was the original Chicago Arts reporter for Examiner.com (now Axios.com.) I reviewed dance, theater, live music, and burlesque, took my own photos and filed articles the night of an event.
When you hire me, you will usually receive your photos the night of the event and certainly the next day. For wedding or festivals where I’ll take a few thousand photos, I deliver within 3 days. I have extensive experience photographing live events, concerts, corporate events, every type of party, wedding, bar mitzvah.

My clients include 100+ local bands, artists, and actors. I have worked for Marnie Stern, Lisa Loeb, Eleven Magazine (St. Louis) Yelp North Shore and the Chicago corporate Office, the Streeterville Chamber of Commerce, JBTV, Ms. Magazine, and had photos in most local newspapers and magazines.

I have photograph hundreds of local and national rock stars, The Police, Elvis Costello, Iggy Pop, Metric, Andrew WK, Wilco, Garbage, Sinead O’Connor, Jeff Tweedy, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Todd Rungren, The Zombies, Dan Navarro, Guided By Voices, Neutral Milk Hotel, Peaches, Wu Tang Clan, Ice Cube, No Doubt, Buck Cherry, Weezer, White Mystery, The Luck of Eden Hall, Psychedelic Furs, St. Vincent, Mormon Toasterhead, Spoon, Shirley Manson, Of Monsters and Men, Chris Cornell, Grouplove, Alt J, Kitten, The 1975, Tegan and Sara, Magic Slim, Kill Hannah, The Waco Brothers, Redwalls, Twin Peaks, The Flaming Lips, Michael McDermott, Heather Horton, Denny Lane, and many many more! I’ll be happy to photograph your event. You can contact me at LeeKlawans at Gmail dot com.
