JEAN WHITESIDE

HI, I have been a professional photographer all of my adult life.

I loved it way back when it was film and still find it intriguing in digital format.   I enjoy working with people in all circumstances, each opportunity is unique and brings its own style.

I grew up in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago, later I attended Southern Illinois University at Carbondale where I studied and feel in love with photography. I knew what I wanted to do with my life, be a photographer and work with people making incredible images. I moved to Los Angeles with my degree in Photographic and Audio Visual Arts, and was blessed to land a job as a photographer at CBS Television Network.   While at CBS,  I was able to work with some of the best photographers in the business where I learned about lighting, shooting shows on locations, and worked with some of the biggest actors and directors in the business.

After 13 years photographing Television, sports, music, award shows, and special events in Los Angeles, I moved back to my hometown of Chicago.

I’ve continued photographing tv shows, reality shows, sporting events, corporate events, weddings, and other special events.

I enjoy working with people to capture emotions along with priceless moments and telling a story with images.

I have been at it for 20+ years and I still love what I do, I feel very privileged to enjoy my work so much.
