Be prepared to hit the streets of The Windy City again this summer when we explore some of the most interesting neighborhoods in the North Chicago area. Join Olympus Visionary, Mike Boening and One of Detroit’s best urban photographers, Alanna St. Laurent as they lead a street photography workshop Saturday and Sunday, August 22ndand 23rd, 2015. Chicago is an amazing city where the River runs green on St. Patrick’s Day and the pizza is Deep Dish. With over 2.5 million people calling “The Windy City” home, there aren’t too many places better for capturing street scenes in America. The bustling day time foot traffic leads to a fast paced night life. No matter where you go, you will find Chicago to be one of the most interesting cities in America for anyone who loves street photography. So come and enjoy a couple days to learn and be immersed in photography. Take the time to unplug from your daily routine and grab your street gear as we hit the streets in some amazing Chicago neighborhoods as well as meet new photographers with the same passion as yourself.
This will be our 3rd Chicago workshop in the last year and we expect this one to sell out like the others so be sure to sign up early. The neighborhoods of North Chicago are amazing, eclectic and diverse, the best ingredients for some great street imaging. We will explore Lincoln Park, some of the Near North Side on the shore and of course West Town that includes Wicker Park. We keep our groups small, no more than 10, so we can focus on getting you to some of the most interesting places to capture daily life.
