Gene offers with a vast range of commercial and artistic experience that expands over 35 years. Gene began his career as a corporate photographer for AT&T, followed by many years of freelance work which includes such clients as Lamborghini, St. Luke's Hospital, ESRock Food Distributors, and the United States Navy. Now, as an adjunct professor at Joliet Junior College, Gene has developed a teaching program that has evolved from a "getting to know your camera" to a certificate program with advance courses in lighting, marketing, architectural photography, and post production instruction.

While Gene's first love is teaching and is offering group or individual instruction, his vast knowledge in all aspects of photographic medium allow him to offer a variety of services. Commercial, personal sittings or artistic adventures are available upon request.

Please visit us on 2nd Friday to meet Gene and experience what Gene does best. Come and experience your inner " Bogie" or Bacall.

The word Passion isn't often appreciated as it should be... it is what drives us to dream, to visualize and to create. The Windy City Strobists photography studio is the culmination of those truths. I'm Gene Alvear and this studio is dedicated to the total expression of imagery. From in front of the lens or behind the viewfinder we capture, we teach, we nurture, and we master our own vision.

As a corporate photographer for AT&T I yearned to the push the envelope in imagery. Restricted by corporate guidelines, my creative inner voice was muted but once unleashed the epiphany of my own inner vision came to the forefront. With the appreciation of the "dark beautiful" the world is now my backdrop.

"From the skill of capturing a moment, to the art of generating a scene, as a photographer my passion has been to capture nature's elusive light and bring it to any medium art form."
