The HALF­-DAY Tour is a 5-hour tour that begins to give you the feel of being a local Chicagoan and a local photographer. Whether you prefer the iconic Chicago tourist locations or desire more to see the “locals” version with some of our unique and hidden gems, you’ll be shown unique perspectives and be challenged to photograph differently than you have been.

This tour is a blend of walking and public transit.

Tour start / end locations are not the same location. Not to worry, we either end somewhere not far from where we began (or your stay location) or I accompany you back, depending on your plans and comfort level.

Duration: 5 hours
Price: $290 USD (includes 1 / 1+companion) + $10 transit pass* (per person)

*Pricing includes one client. One companion is included at no extra charge. For 3 ­-5 people, $65 USD each additional person. If you are bringing more than five of your favorite photography friends, please contact me before booking to inquire.

*The 1­-day Ventra transit pass will be purchased at the beginning of your tour, unless otherwise discussed, and provides each person unlimited rides on Chicago’s buses and ‘L’ trains for 24 hours from first use. This is helpful to know if you would like to purchase and use it before your tour or plan to use it for an outing afterward. NOTE: If you use it before your tour, be sure your first use is after the time your tour will end the next day, not begin.

TIP: If you’re a light chaser, check HERE for sunrise, sunset and Blue Hour times before deciding your start time. Select your travel month. The dates are along the left side of the chart. On this site, Blue Hour would be considered the “Civil Twilight” Start or End.
