If you have never visited or photographed in Chicago then you are in for a treat. Its personally one of my favorite cities to visit for street photography as well as sight seeing in general. Not to mention the legendary Central Camera Company, which is one of the oldest camera stores in the country. Wait until you see the film cameras they have in their collection!
This is an all day meet up, however you are welcome to join us at your earliest convenience.
We will be meeting up Friday morning at 10am at the Corner Bakery Cafe just around the corner from Central Camera (Address in the Itinerary below). There we will make introductions, swap film, talk gear and take time to get the initial conversations under way. Around noon we will break off into groups however we like, and head out for lunch and the afternoons shooting.
There is a Provoke Era photography exhibition going on at the Art Institute of Chicago. I will be visiting the exhibition around 2:30 or 3 and anyone who would like to attend with me is welcome to join. (Tickets range from $22 to $27)
We will plan to reconvene at 8pm (Location TBD) where we can do a print swap, share stories from the day and say our goodbyes.
If you have any suggestions or questions as far as the day is concerned, please include them in the contact form below, or send them to me directly on instagram.
