Chicago: Fortis Photo

Jeff Dahlgren is the vision behind Fortis Photo, a Chicago-based commercial studio specialising in food and beverage photography.

Jeff’s love for natural light and the changing of seasons, coupled with his ability for story telling have been key ingredients to his photography.

Some samples from his recent work highlight simple ingredients like the morel mushroom. This accompanied with a much deeper lighting style helps to emphasize it’s unique and almost mysterious quality.

Fortis Photo’s satisfied clients include Simply Chocolate, JBS Foods, Nuts on Clark and US Foods. They rely on Jeff’s team to capture their own brand’s vision and style in a fun and collaborative environment.

On shoot days, you can experience his urban yet comfortable studio space, built out of an old foundry, a block from the Chicago river. His 4,000 sq ft photography studio is well designed, houses an extensive prop collection and was renovated with shooting in mind.
