Is This Photography Tour for Me? 

  • Do you want to learn to see your photographic subjects in new ways? 
  • Do you want to push yourself creatively when out taking photos?
  • Would you like to make people stop and think about what they’re seeing in your images? 
  • Does technical and gear talk make your eyes glaze over?
  • Do you like to think outside the box? 

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then YES! SEE! Chicago with Lauri is for you. 

What this is:

A Photowalk, touristy, let’s hang out while pushing ourselves and learning in the process

A let’s get out and take photos experience

A relaxed, friendly learning environment

Sharing the experience with Like Minded photographers


What This is Not:

Technical, learning how to use your phone/camera to take images.

Sitting in a room listening to me drone on about how to create better images.

Setting up and waiting for hours in one place, just to get one shot.
