Mentioned in Chicago Tribune Story

...Jonathan is quite an accomplished photographer. He uses an X-T2 and you can see some of his images at jonathangrado.com. As you will see, in the hands of a skilled photographer the X-T2 can create exquisite images.
— Chicago Tribune

I was just emailed a heads-up that I was included in this Chicago Tribune story on Fuji cameras and photography. I've been using a Fuji X-T1/X-T2 for the past few years for everything. While seeing some friends 50 megapixel photos blown up makes me a little envious, I've been addicted to to the nimbleness and color reproduction of my X-T2.

Update: Seems like the Tribune link has been changed a few times but this one hasn't so I'll just leave it here.

Minneapolis: General Mills and a Lobby

Skyline View from Stone Arch Bridge

In part of Grado working with General Mills on a project, they were nice enough to fly me out to visit their hometown of Minneapolis, Minnesota. I've never been and expected a ton of snow with -5 degree weather. I went on a good week though and the temperature was a scorching 20 degrees. I probably took too many photos of the Hewing Hotel lobby (where I stayed), the food and cocktail bars were pretty great, and it was a great experience to visit Faribault Wool, a company with a heritage similar to ours.

Morimoto NYC Photoshoot

Morimoto Restuarant NYC

New York Japanese restaurant Morimoto recently contacted me about doing some photography for their new website, and I won't turn down something that combines food and photos. I visited in between lunch and dinner service, photographing prep, chefs, and the space. That sea bass was something else.
