What you'll do
We will meet under the Chicago Theater sign to get acquainted to begin our Chicago adventure! We will visit a variety of challenging BUT photogenic locations with an additional option to visit that Chicago spot that caught your eye on Instagram. You will feel like a local photographer urban exploring through the city! We will run through some pre-planned lessons on the basics of how a camera functions; aperture, shutter speed, ISO, while also going through some lessons on how to shoot certain lighting settings (direct sunlight, fast movement, low-light) as well as anything you may have struggled with or would like to try out. My workshop will also run through how to utilize ND filters and how to shoot long exposure during the day/evening as we will be going into blue hour after sunset. I'll be available to be your resource and can even provide editing tips (Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop) as I will have my laptop on hand!
I am a professional photographer raised in the Chicago suburbs and have lived in the city of Chicago for the last 8 years! Having spent most of my free time out and about in the city I know all the secrets, interesting facts, and photo spots that any visitor could want to experience in this amazing city! My experience has taken me around the world to capture landscapes and cityscapes with detail and precision, a craft which has taken years to learn but I am willing to pass along.

Where you'll be
We will be starting near two of the top attractions in the city in the Chicago Theater and Millenium Park! These are very photogenic areas and are the perfect areas to set up and snap some photos in some unique lighting conditions! If that doesn't appeal to you, we can hit any of the amazing Chicago spots that you have seen on Instagram (mine has pretty much every angle covered @wayfaring.professional).
