Unleash your creativity on the streets of Chicago alongside the world's best street and architecture photographers

Join us to experience and photograph the city of Chicago through your lens with the help and guidance of the best urban photographic instructors. Chicago's diversity, architecture and streets make for the perfect backdrop for your creative vision to come alive. The conference will take place at the Embassy Suites Magnificent Mile, where you'll have easy access to Chicago's iconic scenes as well as little-known photographic spots so you can fully immerse yourself in all the photographic opportunities the city can offer.

Our instructors will be there to guide and teach as you venture through the city and learn with them in an intimate, hands-on workshop setting. In small groups, experience each instructor's different photographic and creative techniques, and see the city from new and different perspectives. Challenge yourself to photograph the urban landscape with creative techniques often applied when photographing other genres of photography, such as nature and landscapes. Summer is our favorite time of year to visit and photograph the city of Chicago. Join us for an unforgettable urban photographic experience.
