Chicago Photography Workshops
Chicago Photography Workshops – Walking Tour
Chicago Photography Workshops are private one on one classes for you. My clients will learn the newest techniques to get amazing pictures of Chicago. We will work with each customer one-on-one to teach you the steps needed. Yes, we will do this with your camera, so the pictures taken are all yours. Our professional photography instructor, Kevin OConnell, has been a photographer for over 40 years and versed in both film and digital cameras. These classes are designed to be fun and informative as well as educational. This class should push you months ahead of reading books with just the two hour class.
Many of our clients are professionals that come to Chicago for a convention or vacation. They are very busy in life and looking for the most feasible way to fit a Photography Workshop in while here, not taking up a whole day or weekend. What they get with us, is a customized workshop that not only gets them the type of shots they like, but send them home with some new techniques that will help in the future. Many of our clients came with new cameras and newer to photography. These same clients left with smiles and great images of a wonderful city.
Creativity is my main focus with my photography workshops and very welcome. Once we work on some easy to learn technical aspects of your camera, we can try some fun and interesting perspectives, like these below.
