What To Expect
Booking a private photo expert allows you to select the below carefully planned routes or when your photo guide contacts you directly to make desired changes where possible according to your interest.
Start near North Avenue Beach, Chicago's busiest beach where the greatest attraction is people-watching. You'll photograph runners, cyclists and inline skaters on the lakeshore path, as well as an outdoor mini fitness center and roller hockey rink.
Stroll along the lake shore to the Magnificent Mile and photograph numerous prestigious buildings such as the Wrigley Building, the John Hancock Center, and Chicago Landmarks such as Tribune Tower and the Allerton Hotel.
From the Chicago River, pass the famous Marina Towers and many swing bridges spanning the river. Along the Chicago Loop, stop at the single-most-famous sculpture in Chicago, Pablo Picasso's Untitled, before seeing Cloud Gate and the Crown Fountain in Millennium Park.
En route to Grant Park and past the Art Institute, you'll see an impressive great wall of buildings from Randolph Street south to Congress Parkway that architecture buffs refer to as the "Michigan Avenue Cliff." Then finally into Grant Park modeled after the gardens at Versailles, you'll photograph giant lawns segmented by allies of trees, plantings, paths, and Buckingham fountain, twice the size of -- the Latona Fountain at Versailles.
