The Deal

$59 for an instructional Chicago photography safari (up to a $119 value)

Chicago Photo Safaris' band of professional shutterbugs equips beginner photographers with the basics of operating their own camera and capturing photo-worthy landmarks and scenery during one of eight photo safaris. The attentive instructors precede every safari with a 40-minute lesson geared toward camera operation and functions including ISO, shutter speed, and white balance. In the popular Chicago Photo Adventure Day Safari, Lincoln Park Zoo Night Safari, and Millennium Park Day Safari, photographers shoot landmarks such as Cloud Gate, Buckingham Fountain, and Museum Campus. During each safari, students will receive real-time photography critiques, suggested adjustments for producing vivid prints, and the inspiration to capture lasting images without having to carve them into stone tablets.
