Dawn came way too early with the alarm beeping at me at 3am. I was so afraid that I’d sleep through the ringing of my alarm clock, so I got right up. I did not want to miss my shot at the private sunrise viewing from the 94th floor of the Hancock Tower in Chicago. At the last minute, I realized that I hadn’t asked about bringing my tripod to the Hancock Center.
If you are a photographer and you live in the Upper Midwest area of the U.S., then you’ve probably heard of The Out of Chicago Conference. These words, taken from their website, say it best: “Out of Chicago connects passionate photographers with their photography heroes through intimate photography experiences in amazing locations.”
