Chicago is the birthplace of the skyscraper and filled with incredible architectural gems from Frank Lloyd Wright to Frank Gehry and beyond. After a great fire in 1871, Chicago had to start from scratch, and aimed for the most ambitious buildings of its time. This started a movement to push boundaries and be on the forefront of architecture which hasn’t slowed down, even to this day.
You will have the opportunity to photograph the many fascinating skyscrapers of Chicago like the Willis Tower, Aqua Tower and more as well as famous sculptures like Cloud Gate and the Flamingo.
You will also have the opportunity to take an architectural river cruise to take in all the sites and learn the history of this great city.
Spring is an excellent time to visit and capitalize on favorable weather. In addition to photography, Chicago has in incredible culinary scene and we will schedule dinners to capitalize on the restaurant highlights.
Different techniques will be covered to create original images of iconic scenes by using multiple exposure photography as well as black and white processing. We will carve out time for post-processing lessons and critiquing sessions.
