Our promise

Live your best creative life

Out of Chicago brings together passionate enthusiasts with world-class photographers, all in one epic location, where you learn and shoot side-by-side with the pros. Since 2014, we have organized more than 15 hands-on photography conferences in Chicago, New York City, Moab and more. We are all photographers ourselves, so we understand what it takes to be inspired, get to the right place at the right time and live our best creative life.

EPIC LOCATION

From iconic landscapes to dramatic outdoor spaces, we handpick each location for our conferences so you can get the most out of photographing a place. Inclusive of first-class conference facilities to stepping out your door for the first morning light, we promise you a perfect place to learn and play.

IMMERSIVE LEARNING

Each event brings together over a dozen world-class photographers from across the country that specialize in one niche of photography. Spend five days immersing yourself in classes and interactive sessions, learning side-by-side from the pros. This means you can learn, shoot and play in your passion with others just like you.

HANDS-ON INSTRUCTION

Get five full days of personal, hands-on instruction in the classroom and in the field. We teach it. Then you practice what you learn, with your favorite photographers at the top of their game. Pro-level photographers will lead you on daily excursions and assist you in getting the perfect shot.

WORLD-CLASS PHOTOGRAPHERS

Take your photography to the next level with some of the world’s most creative photographers in their field. We’ve gathered over a dozen leading photography instructors, each with their unique perspectives, to teach you what they know. This means we are all here with one purpose – to help you make great images.
