Fortis Studio     From zinc foundry to photography studio, our 4,000 sqft facility was renovated with shooting in mind. We're located 10 minutes from downtown Chicago, just off the Kennedy (90/94) expressway and a block from the Chicago river.  The open concept, industrial, yet comfortable space offers multiple shooting bays, a restaurant quality commercial kitchen, styling station, and an in-house prop room housing a collection of one of a kind backgrounds, surfaces and kitchen props. The space is wet capable for those wild beer splashes and has a loading dock with garage door access to accommodate anything your production might need.  We have dedicated conference and lounge spaces stocked with art and culinary books for inspiration.  
Fortis Photo      Jeff Dahlgren is the vision behind Fortis Photo, a commercial studio in Chicago specializing in food and beverage photography. Fortis is a boutique operation which provides the flexibility to execute single to multi-day photography productions in an efficient, economical way. My creative team will ensure that every part of the process is done with care, passion and technical proficiency. In short, we aim to make the photo shoot the easiest part of your creative campaign. 
About Jeff Dahlgren      Half artist, half technician, I strive to serve enticing, impactful photographs. Whether the imagery is highlighting a small subtle food texture, showcasing your product in a unique way, or profiling the chefs who make the magic happen, know that it will be produced in a collaborative, detail-oriented and inspired environment. I truly believe Ansel Adams had it right when he said “You don’t take a photograph. You make it.”
