Capture Chicago Photography Cruise
Posted on July 19, 2018
When mentioning Chicago to people that don’t live here, their first thoughts are usually about deep dish pizza, hot dogs and Michael Jordan. Not everyone realizes Chicago is photographer’s dream. From catching sunsets at Milton Lee Olive Park to shooting street photography along LaSalle Street to flying your drone and catching great aerial shots of the city’s iconic architecture. Chicago's photography community is as strong as any other city
The best way to truly capture Chicago is by taking the 9am Capture Chicago Photography Cruise. The cruise was designed with the photographer in mind and is a twist on the popular Chicago Architecture Foundation River Cruise. With an earlier morning departure, the cruise gives you perfect light to play with, making your photos really stand out. Fascinating commentary from CAF-certified docents tells you the stories behind the buildings and sights you are capturing.
I hopped aboard one of the cruises recently to experience Chicago from a new perspective. Here I break down some of the different views you can capture including my favorite spot and the most Instagram worthy.
