Photographing the Chicago Botanic Garden with Anne Belmont

 In Chicago Botanic Garden, Conferences, Events, Interviews, Macro

Anne Belmont and I have talked about running a flower and garden photography conference at the Chicago Botanic Garden for years. Everything has come together and we will run the event for the first time this August.

In this interview, Anne and I discuss her favorite locations in the Garden and give some details on the upcoming Out of Chicago Flower and Garden Photography Conference.

The interview is a bit long. If you’d rather listen to it in your car, the link to the audio only podcast is at the top of this post. To see Anne’s amazing flower images you’ll need to watch the interview on Youtube below.

    Absolutely beautiful work! Huge fan! πŸ™‚

    I’m looking forward to the event because this type of photography is not my strong suit, and I want to learn from the best.

    I’m honored and super excited to be a part of the teaching team at this conference. Awesome interview, Anne! You rock! (And you do too, Chris!!) Thanks for all your hard work in putting this together.

    The Chicago Botanic Garden is amazing, and I can’t wait to teach some new macro and in-camera Impressionism techniques there.

    Looking forward to the conference. When can we sign up? I am a member of the Cleveland Botanic Garden and found out I can get into the Chicago Garden with no parking fee. I’ve been to the Chicago Garden and it’s spectacular.
