Since the age of 5, when he asked a stunned Santa for a set of stage spotlights and dry ice, Guy Rhodes has had his sights set on the behind-the-scenes craftwork of the visual arts industry. Whether it’s photography, lighting design, video production, or the artful synergy of all three talents, Guy’s attention to detail and true passion for his crafts drive each of the projects he undertakes, no matter how large or small.
Employed as a contract photojournalist for The Post-Tribune, part of Chicago’s Sun Times News Group, since 2004, Guy’s highlights include covering the 2008 U.S. presidential election, as well as flying with aerobatic teams during coverage of the annual Gary South Shore Air Show.
Guy earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Theater/Lighting Design at Columbia College in Chicago, and splits his lighting disciplines between shows for live audiences and lighting for the camera. As director of photography, Guy has completed numerous independent short and feature films, as well as music videos and industrials.
