NEW FORMAT. NEW PERSPECTIVES.

TAKE A DEEP-DIVE INTO A NEW WAY OF SEEING THINGS

Out of Chicago IN-DEPTH brings you a new interactive format, with new creative content to keep you inspired as you improve your photography, including 30+ unique, advanced classes and several legendary photographers you may have not met before. 

Together, two world-class photographers will lead each deep-dive session with fresh content as they share their individual methods and practices on a favorite topic. We even asked our instructors to bring along some of their favorite photographers so you can learn from them too. As part of any learning cycle you need to get out and practice what you’ve learned, which is why we’ve added it to the workshop’s format. Get out, shoot and play over a one-week period and check-in, sharing and exchanging your discoveries in our online Community. Then  join your peers to be part of a series of epic, group image reviews where instructors will highlight what you’ve learned.

Don’t worry, if you miss any of the sessions, you have 12-months access to watch what you missed.

“OMG… this is awesome.” – Barbara
