Urban Nature Break



This “tour” was designed for the sole purpose of getting you into nature to hit pause for a bit

See this outing as an opportunity to take a break from your routine and stress to immerse and explore one of Chicago’s important nature areas with your camera / smartphone. I will teach you how photography of any level can be used to de-stress, shift your focus and be used as a tool in your mental wellbeing routine.

NOTE: This is not a city tour. The goal of this outing is to escape the skyscrapers, traffic and sounds of the urban environment without having to leave the city.

Chicago is third largest city in the US and landlocked in the Midwest region with skyscrapers and industry so you might not think “nature” when Chicago comes to mind. You might be surprised to learn it’s located directly on the North American major bird migration path as well as being a major throughway between the Great Lakes and the Mississippi River. We have dozens of beaches and bike/run/walk paths along Lake Michigan’s lakefront, nature preserves, bird sanctuaries, parks with skyline views and more!

NOTE: Return clients of this tour will experience a different nature location each time

START / END LOCATIONS: Tour start / end locations may not the same location

TIP: This is a walking photography tour, not a technical workshop.

This is a perfect opportunity to put those lessons to practice in an urban setting.
