Event Details

Taking this tour at the beginning of your visit will give you fun photography tools to notice things you may have otherwise missed while on your other Chicago tours and help you take more interesting photos than those quick-click "tourist shots". If you're a local or native Chicagoan, this tour will be a fun challenge to explore your city from different perspectives and enjoy getting out! 

From buildings to bridges and from art to everyday things, our world has been built using design elements (or breaking those rules). Chicago is a perfect place to find and create interesting photographs of these elements. In fact, as in art and architecture, design elements are the very foundations of building a great photograph!

On this very interactive tour, you will be given “assignments” or challenges to have fun and learn the various design elements. Through this process, you will be surprised how much you learn about your camera and basic photography techniques. Most of our time will be spent exploring the area finding design elements in areas rich with architecture and design elements.

The primary location for this tour will be Chicago’s Loop, though this type of tour is great for exploring other Chicago neighborhoods. Contact me to discuss where you want to explore!

Time flies by quickly during this tour while we walk, interact and practice shooting gon. I am more concerned about what you see BEFORE touching the camera's settings. You will be learning your camera as you learn to compose your photos.

Duration: 2 – 2.5 hours (allowing time for assignments and exploration)

Walking Length: Varies depending on group size and physical ability
