Unmanned Pix (UP) is located in the northern suburbs of Chicago and was founded in 2017 by me, Jacob Rosenfeld. I am an architectural portfolio and product photographer that has spent years capturing space and design with both feet on the ground. I started my studio Jacob Rosenfeld Photography 10 years ago. While I still eagerly take on ground-based photo assignments, I’ve become fascinated with being able to see and capture vantage points that are not easily accessible to humans.
I wasn’t always a photographer, however. I have a design degree in architecture (BA) from Roger Williams University in Rhode Island. I’ve worked in architectural firms large and small, the biggest being Skidmore, Owings & Merrill — both here in the States and in Europe. In 1997, just prior to earning my degree, I founded my first business, a freelance web / graphic design firm called 4D, Inc. — which also included photography services. 4D stands for “Dynamic Digital Design Development”, but “4D” simply became much easier to communicate.
So that’s a little bit about me. Whenever I’m not flying drones, I can usually be found spending time with my family, playing with the latest tech toys, advancing my knowledge in some way, or looking at pictures. I love studying spatial geometries, structure, transparency, solar movement, light, shadow & reflection, and I’m fascinated in how the endless combinations of those elements shape the world around us. Capturing those details… creating images — whether from the sky -or- the ground is my life, and I’m passionate about what I do. Contact Me today, and let’s discuss what I can capture for you!
