Chicago Photojournalism Classes: My students


I’ve taught Photojournalism at the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University for over ten years, but, in the last seven weeks, I’ve done something different.

I had the pleasure of teaching at the Chicago Photography Center, working with adults for the first time.

We spent some time outdoors while they learned camera basics, then ventured into the cavernous basement of the CPC, formally a bank vault, and had fun shooting while I gave a lighting demonstration.

I am extremely proud of what my students accomplished in just a short time, documenting strangers like professionals and telling their stories.    Thanks so much, CPC students, I can’t wait to watch you grow behind the camera!

Chicago Lincoln Park Engagement Photography: Liz and Ryan

What I remember most about documenting Liz and Ryan is laughing.  I laughed so much with these two!

This day also happens to be the end-all, be-all day of amazing found parking I’ve ever had on a shoot in Chicago, and it’s because I had Liz and Ryan with me.   Rock star parking at every location we ventured to, including downtown and Lincoln Park (or Lincoln NO Park as it is commonly known in Chicago!)    It will probably never happen again, which is why I would love to spend more time with Liz and Ryan, especially when I am in need of a belly laugh, or a killer parking spot. :-)

Thanks so much, you two!   Cannot wait to document your wedding!
