Description

Ready to really get to know Chicago?

What Chicago story do you want to tell?

Chicago is made up of smaller distinct neighborhoods that are vibrant and full of cultural history. Let's spend the afternoon together walking the city, exploring the diverse neighborhoods, and taking pictures. You can bring an iPhone, point & shoot, or dslr to document this great Windy City through street photography.*

You will have the opportunity to tell your own story through your eyes. You will learn and explore about cultures and people in Chicago, leaving with greater understanding and insight about the history of Chicago's neighborhoods, and the racial & ethnic diversity of the city. It will be a mix of photography and education, interactive fun and learning. It's a perfect way to see the city and get to know Chi-town better than any other way. We will visit Humboldt Park, Ukrainian Village, Pilsen, China-town, Bridgeport, Bronzeville, and River North**

Objective

  • To develop your photographic eye
  • To hone in on your photography skills and your street photography practice
  • To learn the history and backgrounds of several Chicago neighborhoods
  • To create your own Chicago story with your camera
  • To notice more in your city and better understand the connection from the past to the present


This workshop requires heavy walking, flexibility, and go-with-the flow mentality. We will be hopping around Chicago in a short time span so this will require people to have patience and understanding as things may happen that are out of our control.

I will provide you with some snacks for the afternoon but please plan accordingly.

Cost is $55 per person - pay in full to reserve your spot. If rained out, we will reschedule. Tickets are non refundable unless an emergency occurs.

We will be using public transportation because this is truly one of the best ways to see the city. The price does not include transportation. Please bring your ventra card or I can provide transportation you for an additional $10 per person.

Limited to 10 spots. Message amandasaperture@gmail.com for questions.


*This not a technical class - please come with basic photography skills and knowledge of how to use your camera.

**Itinerary is subject to change
