This week on the Out of Chicago Podcast, we recap this weekend’s Portrait Conference with Chris Smith, Michael Novo and Malinda Kavetschanky.

Saturday featured classes throughout the day as well as a photowalk by Giulio Sciorio, and then finished with all-day workshops on Sunday with Nick Page, Steve Nielsen, Mark Serrano and Detklef Körtge.

One of the other highlights of the weekend was Robin Hansen from Picsy Photography.
