Chris is a Chicago based Photographer and creator of Out of His blog has been a growing resource for photographers looking to photograph the city as well as surrounding areas. The growth of the Blog has been amazing and Chris now has the Out of Chicago podcast and he is the author of The Photographer’s Guide to Chicago. To top it all off this upcoming weekend will be the second annual Out Of Chicago Photography Conference.

By day, Chris is a high school physics teacher and lives with his wife and two kids in the Chicago Suburbs.

I hope that the Out of Chicago blog becomes a useful resource for anyone trying to get great shots of the city of Chicago and the surrounding areas. I will try to provide info on the best locations to shoot. There will be ideas for day and weekend trips in and around Chicago. There will be tips and techniques to help you get the best shots and reviews to help you find the best equipment and learning resources. Along the way, I hope to show you some of my favorite shots that I have taken over the years and introduce you to some of my favorite Chicago photographers.
