Photographer Steven Kowalski of Winston and Khan, who has captured images of Mötley Crüe, Weezer, and Public Enemy, helms a flash-savvy staff that photographs babies and children, couples, families, and professional headshots. To best tell subjects’ stories, Kowalski consults with each client before the photo shoot commences to discuss ideal outcomes and string theory. After the in-studio or on-location session, which will accommodate as many poses as time and gravity permit, the newly glossified choose favorite images from a DVD or online gallery and pick five of their favorites to be retouched and five to be color-corrected.
Winston & Khan
Like all baby photographers, Steven Kowalski's career began with a heavy dose of rock ‘n’ roll. For three years, he used his camera to capture the up-tempo antics of bands such as Mötley Crüe, Weezer, and Public Enemy. But after more than 300 concerts, Steve decided to settle down and open a Chicago-based photography studio. Steve translated his experience shooting convivial crowds at concerts into expertly photographing family-focused shoots, giving him a unique talent for capturing memorable group shots.
And just as he did with rock stars, Steve uses his camera to capture a baby’s or parent's unique personality. Depending on the client, he can shoot in-studio, at their home, or at locations such as Millennium Park. In addition to babies, Steve also specializes in wedding and fashion photography.
