NEW IN 2023!
This “tour” was designed to provide you an opportunity to take a break from your routine and stress to immerse and explore Chicago’s important nature areas with your camera / smartphone. We will work together on some key photography practices and exercises (not workout exercises, though happy to add in if desired) that will also send you back to your day / week feeling refreshed and even seeing more creatively.
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 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
