If you are an adventurous photographer who loves to shoot photography, learn from other fellow photographers, and learn a little Chicagoland history, then this is the group you should consider joining. We will have a variety of outings in downtown Chicago and its multitude of neighborhoods, along with some adventurous outings in other areas of the Chicagoland area.

Some examples of outings that have we have had in the first half of 2015 are as follows:  A sunrise shoot at Adler Planetarium, a history walk through Old Town and the Gold Coast, a visit to the Elmhurst Art Museum, a private tour of the Newberry Library, a hilly hike through Lemont, a walk through Wicker Park, sunset shoots on the lakefront, a private tour of the Chicago Theatre with the group of crazy and friendly photographers you see in the picture above, and so much more. And that's been just the first 6 months of the year.

Come join us for a photo shoot and possibly a nice breakfast or lunch and maybe even a drink after our tours have concluded.

See you soon and contact me with any questions. 

P.S. - In this photo, I'm the guy in the back row without a camera.  I had to lend mine to our tour guide so he could take this picture.
